Article Type: Commentary | First Published: April 24, 2019

Prior to FMTVDM/BEST Imaging, diagnostic testing was limited to looking for breast cancer either using "qualitative" imaging defining disease as being present or absent, or semiquantitative methods which are also limited to the same yes you have breast cancer or no you don't interpretation. These imaging methods include mammography, ultrasound, CT, MRI, as well as other SPECT/Planar and PET imaging approaches and as such are associated with sensitivity and specificity problems. These tests are f...

Uwe Fischer, M Hollstein, S Luftner-Nagel, F Baum and S Wienbeck

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: April 04, 2019

Tumor size, the histology and immunhistochemical parameters as well as the lymph node status at the time of diagnosis have a relevant influence on the prognosis and the long time-survival of breast cancer. In this context, invasive carcinomas under 10 mm in size, which most often exhibit a N0-lymph node status, have an excellent 10-year-tumor-free survival rate of 98%. With respect to intraductal breast tumors, this rate increases to 100% if adequate therapy is performed. Self-examination and me...
