  1. 1. Measurement of Tumor Extent and Effects of Breast Compression in Digital Mammography and Breast Tomosynthesis

    Detta är en avhandling från Medical Radiation Physics, Lund University

    Författare :Daniel Förnvik; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; digital mammography; breast tomosynthesis; breast compression; pressure distribution; breast cancer; circulating tumor cell;

    Sammanfattning : Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting women in the western countries. Today x-ray digital mammography (DM) of the breast is commonly used for early detection of breast cancer. However, the sensitivity of mammography is limited, mainly due to the fact that a 3D volume is projected down to a 2D image. LÄS MER

  2. 2. MICROWAVE IMAGING OF BIOLOGICAL TISSUES: applied toward breast tumor detection

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för datavetenskap och elektronik

    Författare :Tommy Gunnarsson; Mälardalens högskola.; [2007]

    Sammanfattning : Microwave imaging is an efficient diagnostic modality for non-invasively visualizing dielectric contrasts of non-metallic bodies. An increasing interest of this field has been observed during the last decades. Many application areas in biomedicine have been issued, recently the breast tumor detection application using microwave imaging. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular Analysis of Breast Cancer Transcriptomes, Genomes, and Circulating Tumor DNA

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Oncology and Pathology

    Författare :Eleonor Olsson; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancer stem cells; RNA splicing; breast cancer; mutations; circulating tumor DNA; early detection of recurrent breast cancer; sequencing;

    Sammanfattning : Breast cancer is a very heterogeneous disease in terms of clinical characteristics, genetic aberrations and prognosis. In Paper I, we focused on the CD44 molecule that often is aberrantly expressed in breast cancer and is widely used as a marker for cancer stem cells. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Chemosensitivity in Breast Cancer

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Kenneth Villman; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :Oncology; breast cancer; chemotherapy; anthracycline; predictive; topoisomerase; TOP2A; HER2; cyclin A; in vitro; Onkologi;

    Sammanfattning : Breast cancer mortality in Sweden is now in decline, thanks to early detection and the wide use of adjuvant endocrine therapy and chemotherapy. While hormone receptor status is predictive of response to endocrine treatment, there is no clinically useful predictive marker of a patient’s response to chemotherapy. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Integration of Tumor and Host Factors – Implications for Breast Cancer Prognosis

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Maria Simonsson; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Breast Cancer; Prognosis and survival; CYP1A2; CYP2C8; Coffee Consumption; Alcohol Consumption; Cyclooxygenase-2 COX-2 ;

    Sammanfattning : Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, although the mortality rates have decreased in the last decades. Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease, and treatment resistance is a significant clinical problem in spite of the overall high survival rates. LÄS MER
