DCIS left breast

Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger


Routine mammogram left breast.

Patient Data

Age: 60
Gender: Female

The patient has developed microcalcifications at 3 o' clock left breast.


The ultrasound images show the microcalcifications and together with the mammogram mag views, the images are highly suggestive of DCIS.

Case Discussion

The initial interpretation suggested the calcifications were possibly benign. Any postmenopausal woman who develops a change in breast imaging deserves careful consideration and if you are unsure, get a second opinion. The calcifications can confidently be biopsied under ultrasound guidance.
