3D Mammography Significantly Reduces Breast Biopsy Rates

Images in a 63-year-old asymptomatic woman who was recalled because a new 8-mm mass was detected in the left breast at screening mam¬mography. (a) Left mediolateral oblique and (b) left mediolateral oblique spot compression mammograms show an 8-mm partly ill-defined mass (arrow) in the upper breast. (c) Left mediolateral oblique digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) image shows an 8-mm well-defined mass (arrow) in the upper breast. The mass was interpreted as benign at DBT and was coded R2 benign; however, it was indeterminate at full-field digital mammography. Targeted US of the breast revealed normal findings, and stereotactic biopsy yielded a diagnosis of micropapillary ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Wide local surgical exci¬sion revealed a 5-mm high-grade DCIS. Credit: Radiological Society of North America
