Patient Data

Age: 45

Breast MRI C+

Pear like shaped mass between upper quadrants (56 mm), with sharp margins. The mass is hyperintense in T2 acquisitions, hypointense in T1 acquisitions. Enhancement is slightly dis-homogeneous with an inner core more vividly enhancing. The lesion enhancement shows a type I curve (progressive enhancement). The lesion is hyperintense in DWI acquisitions.

Findings are quite suggestive of a benign lesion.
