Breast calcifications (BI-RADS 4)
Citation, DOI, disclosures and case data
First screening mammography of a 40 YO female without familial history of breast cancer.
Amorphous and fine pleomorphic calcifications are seen in a segmental distribution in the central lateral part of the right breast. (BI-RADS 4)
Stereotactic biopsy specimens
A mammography-guided stereotactic core needle biopsy was performed for the suspicious segmental calcifications of the right breast, and a specimen radiograph showed several pieces of specimens with multiple isolated calcification foci.
It should be reminded that up to 25% of DCIS revealed on core biopsy may have invasive breast carcinoma following surgical excision.
