Mammography with a fully automated breast volumetric software as a novel method for estimating the preoperative breast volume prior to mastectomy

Abstract
Purpose: Increasing interest in maintaining a positive body image following breast cancer surgery has become an
important aspect of reconstruction surgery. Volume matching of the reconstructed breast to natural breasts is the most
important consideration. This study aimed to explore the feasibility of using mammography with a fully automated breast
volumetric software to measure the preoperative breast volume in patients with breast cancer.
Methods: We evaluated patients who underwent a total mastectomy between July 2016 and February 2021. The specimen
volume following total mastectomy was compared with breast volume estimates using a fully automated volumetric
software (Quantra ver. 2.1.1) and 4 other previously described mammography-based prediction methods. The association
between the estimates and mastectomy specimen volume was assessed using Pearson correlation and Bland-Altman
analysis.
Results: Sixty-six patients were included. Compared with previously described mammography-based methods, Quantra
estimates were more strongly correlated with mastectomy specimen volume in the entire, fatty, and dense breast groups
(r = 0.920, 0.921, and 0.915, respectively; P < 0.001). In applying Quantra estimates for measuring preoperative breast
volume, we adjusted a simple equation: mastectomy specimen volume = Quantra estimate × 0.8.
Conclusion: Mammography with a fully automated breast volumetric software can be useful for measuring preoperative
