IDC - right breast

Case contributed by Dr Garth Kruger

Presentation

Routine MLO views two years apart, right breast.

Patient Data

Age: 45
Gender: Female

.

As mentioned before, the submammary fat is a review area on breast imaging. This case also demonstrates the value of previous images for comparison. The profile of the pectoral muscle must be pristine and uniterrupted on the MLO view.

Golden rule: always look at previous imaging.

One more: breast ultrasound is a hands on procedure. Do it in real time with your own eyes or get bitten.

Last one: screening studies need to be read in an uniterrupted environment free of phones.
