This proved to be DCIS with invasive carcinoma. Mass A ‘Mass’ is a space occupying 3D lesion seen in two different projections.

These were the result of lipofilling, which is transplantation of body fat to the breast. Ultrasound demonstrated a 37 mm mass with indistinct and angular margins and shadowing.

Nevertheless the patient and the clinician preferred removal, because the radiologist was not able to present a clear differential diagnosis. The initial short-term follow-up of a BI-RADS 3 lesion is a unilateral mammogram at 6 months, then a bilateral follow-up examination at 12 months. In BI-RADS the use of percentages is discouraged, because in individual cases it is more important to take into account the chance that a mass can be obscured by fibroglandular tissue than the percentage of breast density as an indicator for breast cancer risk.

Mammography and Ultrasound Lexicon The table shows a summary of the mammography and ultrasound lexicon. Findings that represent unilateral deposits of fibroglandulair tissue atlae conforming to the definition of a mass. Solid lesions can be injected with contrast or a marker can be placed in difficult cases. All fat-containing lesions are typically benign.


Lesions appropriately placed in this category include: Even better to have the old examinations before starting the examination.

If the findings shows no change in the follow up the final assessment is changed to BI-RADS 2 benign and no further follow up is needed. Mammography is highly sensitive in altas setting. Breast Imaging State of the Industry. Philips announced what it calls its ultimate ultrasound solution for breast assessment, available with the 5tth Epiq 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.

In editiin paragraph on location we will discuss how we can be sure that the lymph node that we found with ultrasound is indeed the same as the mammographic mass. Due to the dense fibroglandular tissue the tumor is not well seen. Here multiple round circumscribed low density masses in the right breast. The breasts are symmetric and no masses, architectural distortion or suspicious calcifications are present.

In atlae, the fifth edition includes updated descriptors for breast composition, descriptors for elasticity assessment in ultrasound and descriptors for implant assessment in MRI. On the initial mammogram a marker is placed in the palpable tumor.

After chemotherapy the tumor is not visible on the mammogram. Nonpalpable, circumscribed mass on a baseline mammogram unless it can be shown to be a cyst, an intramammary lymph node, or another benign findingFocal asymmetry which becomes less dense on spot compression view Solitary group of punctate calcifications. First describe the editiion composition.

Mobile lump, lateral in left breast, since 2 months. Ultrasound examination was performed.

The density of a mass is related to the expected attenuation of an equal volume of fibroglandular tissue. Referral to the breast clinic was now strongly indicated and was put in motion by the general practitioner after telephone consultation. They all have characteristically benign appearances, and may be labeled with confidence.


Concordant with the lump and the mass on the mammogram there is an oval simple cyst, parallel orientation, circumscribed, Anechoic with posterior enhancement. News Ultrasound Women’s Health October 26, Only the size of the most important cyst 1 should be mentioned.

Associated features play a role in the final assessment. Always try to avoid this category by immediately doing additional imaging or retrieving old films before reporting. Verbal discussions between radiologist, patient or referring clinician should be documented in the report. When there is a significant finding use the descriptors in the table.

Management After informed consent of the patient a 14G core needle biopsy was performed, two specimens were obtained. For instance if there is a mass that causes architectural distortion, the likelihood of malignancy is greater than in the case of a mass without distortion.

This ddition is designed to improve patient care by serving as a comprehensive guide providing standardized breast imaging terminology, report organization, assessment structure and a classification system for mammography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging MRI of the breast.

Asymmetry versus Mass All types of asymmmetry have different border contours than true masses and also lack the conspicuity of masses. Notice the focal skin retraction.
