[Male breast cancer]

GÖBLYÖS Péter

[Male breast cancer does not get a sufficient attention which would be appropriate due to its special features. Diagnostical and therapeutical protocols are not existing, a national center and international collaboration would be necessary. Incidence of male breast cancer is one percent of the female breast cancers, and 5 percent of all male cancers. The absolute number of the cases increased in the past years. The mutation of gene BRCA2 plays the main role in the male breast cancer. The breast cancer of the men is a "late disease", because often neither the doctor nor the patient considers this opportunity. The diagnosis is often established at an advanced stage. Cancer can occur on both sides, but the right breast is more often affected. Staging is the same as in female patients. Prognosis is poorer than in females, the tumor-receptor rate is better, HER2 in men does not plays any role. Basic principles of diagnostics and therapy are same as in females, mainly because there is no consensus about the treatment of the male breast cancer. The same proved protocols are used in men which are applied in women. The ground-method is surgery, reduced radicality and mastectomy is usually applied. Males react on hormone therapy better, than women, mainly chemotherapy is suggested. Follow up of the patients and the psychological support is extremely important. A multidisciplinary collaboration is necessary in the treatment of the male patient, and education is of great importance.]

[X-ray examination of paintings]

SZABÓ Éva, SZENTKIRÁLYI Miklós

[INTRODUCTION - After the discovery of X-ray it was not only used for medical purposes, but also to study the internal structure of various objects. The X-ray examination can be applied not only to examine paintings, but other works of art. METHODS AND RESULTS - The rontgenograms are made by industrial film without any screen in the museum. In case of paintings soft-beam examination technique was used. The basic principle of the X-ray examination of different paintings is based on the presence of different atomic number in different paints. Authors after the examination of four paintings achieved a significant finding. In these paintings the stylistic and structural features of the pictures, injuries, originality, changes in the composition during the work of the artist can be studied. CONCLUSIONS - Recordings made by an industrial radiological equipment in the Museum of Fine Arts (Budapest) are helpful in the restorer work.]
