  • lesions
  • A 2003 Cochrane review found screening by breast self-examination is not associated with lower death rates among women who report performing breast self-examination and does, like other breast cancer screening methods, increase harms, in terms of increased numbers of benign lesions identified and an increased number of biopsies performed.

  • suspicion
  • Over the last three decades, efforts have been made to improve PCa detection using prebiopsy imaging to locate targets of suspicion for guided biopsy rather than to rely on random sampling. (hindawi.com)
  • benign
  • The advantage of the needle biopsy approach is that women may avoid an operation if the results are benign, and can get the benefit of appropriate preoperative planning if cancer is detected. (redorbit.com)
  • suspicious
  • Multiparametric-MRI (MP-MRI) has emerged as a promising instrument in identifying suspicious regions within the prostate that require special attention on subsequent biopsy. (hindawi.com)

  • magnetic
  • Imaging studies in patients with suspected or confirmed coccidioidomycosis include plain chest radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and, possibly, positron-emission tomography (PET). (medscape.com)
  • possibility
  • Chest radiography should be performed in all patients in whom coccidioidomycosis is suspected or confirmed, because of the possibility of pulmonary infection. (medscape.com)
  • adjacent
  • It is a low-cost, practical tool for live imaging during procedures in which the boundaries of the prostate and its adjacent structures must be visualized, including biopsies and brachytherapy. (hindawi.com)
  • however
  • However, this strategy fails to detect an unacceptably high percentage of clinically significant cancers, leading researchers to develop new, innovative methods to improve the effectiveness of prostate biopsies. (hindawi.com)
  • apparently
  • Transplant kidney biopsy can be performed when nothing is apparently wrong with the transplant kidney for the purposes of surveillance for hidden disease (protocol transplant biopsy). (wikipedia.org)
  • done
  • It can be divided into six categories: Blood tests may be done prior to or in lieu of a biopsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • require special
  • Needle biopsies require special instruments, techniques, and skills that may not be available at all treatment sites," explained Ted A. James, MD, FACS, associate professor of surgery at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and lead author of the study. (redorbit.com)

  • high
  • Renal biopsy is usually reserved for patients with high or increasing levels of proteinuria, or for patients who have proteinuria along with other signs of renal dysfunction. (wikipedia.org)
  • cases
  • While renal biopsy is not indicated in all cases of haematuria, it may be performed in those with glomerular haematuria (blood that is thought to come from damage to the glomerulus) or when combined with features of progressive renal disease (e.g. increasing proteinuria, elevated blood pressure and kidney failure). (wikipedia.org)
