Always make sure that a mass that is found on physical examination is the same as the mass that is found with mammography or ultrasound. The shape of a mass is either round, oval or irregular.

All types of asymmmetry have different border contours than true masses and also lack the conspicuity of masses.

Associated features play a role in the final assessment. Volpara Solutions announced that the data stored in the Volpara Enterprise cloud now exceeds 1 million mammographic This implies tads suspicious finding.

By subdividing Category 4 into 4A, 4B and 4Cit is encouraged that relevant probabilities for malignancy be indicated within this category so the patient and her physician can make an informed decision on the ultimate course of action.

Some areas eddition the breasts are sufficiently dense to obscure small masses. This category is reserved for findings that do not have the classic appearance of malignancy but are sufficiently suspicious to justify a recommendation for biopsy.


Digital Radiography Technology Report: Referral to the breast clinic was now strongly indicated and was put in motion by the general practitioner after telephone consultation. Verbal discussions between radiologist, patient and referring clinician should editlon documented in the original report or in an addendum.

It also facilitates outcome monitoring and quality assessment. In addition, the fifth edition includes updated descriptors for breast composition, descriptors for elasticity assessment in ultrasound and descriptors for implant assessment in MRI. The initial atlzs follow-up of a BI-RADS 3 lesion is a gi mammogram at 6 months, then a bilateral follow-up examination at 12 months. Management The palpable cyst was painful, after informed consent uncomplicated puncture for suction of the cyst was performed.

Don’t use if acf mammography or US are irrelevant, because the finding is already suspicious. The pathologist could report to you that it is sclerosing adenosis or ductal carcinoma in situ. In the BI-RADS edition the assignment of the breast composition is changed into a, b, c and d-categories followed by a description:. The breasts are symmetric and no masses, architectural distortion or suspicious calcifications are present.

The fibroglandular tissue in the upper part is sufficiently dense to obscure small masses. Here multiple round circumscribed low density masses in the right breast.

Don’t use for imaging findings, demonstrating suspicious findings other than the known cancer, then use Category 4 or 5.

If Mammography and US are performed: After chemotherapy the tumor is not 5yh on the mammogram. DO Use for findings sufficiently suspicious to justify biopsy Use for findings sufficiently suspicious to justify biopsy and the patient or referring clinician refrain from biopsy because of contraindications.

BI-RADS® for Ultrasound

The incidence of breast cancer is rising globally, with an estimated 1 in 8 women diagnosed in their lifetime and 40, The table 5gh a summary of the mammography and ultrasound lexicon. The palpable cyst was painful, after informed consent uncomplicated puncture for suction of the cyst was performed. It is not expected to change over the follow-up interval, but the radiologist would prefer to establish its stability.

Distribution of calcifications The arrangement of calcifications, the distribution, is at least as important as morphology. The ultrasound lexicon has many similarities to the mammography lexicon, but there are some descriptors that are specific for ultrasound. We will discuss the lexicon in more detail in a moment.
