Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Abstract

Aim: Breast cancer is one of the most important causes of mortality and morbidity in women. With the widespread use of screening mammography, the detection of non-palpable suspected cancerous lesions is increasing. Therefore, the use of vacuum-assisted breast biopsy in the management of breast lesions continues to increase. The aim of this study was to evaluate the histopathological results of suspicious microcalcifications which were diagnosed by vacuum-assisted needle biopsy on a stereotactic prone table and to compare the mammographic features of the microcalcifications with the histopathological results.
Materials and Methods: The study included a total of 119 patients with a median age of 51 years (range, 33-77 years) who underwent stereotactic biopsy on a prone table because of suspicious microcalcifications between March 2010 and July 2014. Retrospective evaluation was made of the preoperative mammographic features, and the BI-RADS (Breast imaging-reporting and data system) scores of the microcalcifications and the vacuum biopsy and / or excisional histopathological results.
Results: Stereotactic vacuum-assisted breast biopsy revealed that 52.1% of the lesions were benign and 47.9% were malignant. After vacuum-assisted stereotactic biopsy 61 patients underwent surgery. In 10 of these (16.3%) the final excisional histopathological diagnosis was benign, and in 51 (83.7%) malignancy was determined.
Conclusion: Vacuum-assisted breast biopsy on a stereotactic prone table is a successful technique with a low failure rate for microcalcifications that are non-palpable and have no ultrasonographic findings.

Keywords: BI-RADS; mammography; microcalcifications; stereotactic vacuum biopsy
