To study the effect and clinical value of mammography in the diagnosis of breast lump so as to improve the diagnosis level of breast cancer. A retrospective analysis was carried out on clinical data of patients with mammary lump confirmed by pathology to study the compliance of mammography diagnosis and Pathology diagnosis in breast lump, and the detection of microcalcifications, phyllode, and observe the image performance of mammography. Taking infitrating ductal carcinoma IDC as an example, the correlation of image performance and clinical pathological features of different types was studied so as to predict if mammography performance was effective in the treatment and prognosis in breast cancer.
The results address the long-held question of which BI-RADS categories on screening breast ultrasound should prompt further imaging, follow-up, or biopsy, presenter Dr. Wendie Berg of the University of Pittsburgh told session attendees. The study is part of a three-year trial that is comparing DBT and supplemental ultrasound with DBT alone; Berg presented preliminary data from two of those years.
Mammography screening results in a significant number of false-positives. The use of pretest breast cancer risk factors to guide follow-up of abnormal mammograms could improve the positive predictive value of screening. We evaluated the use of the Gail model, body mass index BMIand genetic markers to predict cancer diagnosis among women with abnormal mammograms.
Breast lumps detected during pregnancy are generally benign and reflect fibroadenoma, lactating adenoma, cysts, infarction of the breast or galactocele. Although rare, the possibility of breast cancer must also be considered to avoid any delays in diagnosis. After patient questioning and clinical examination, the first imaging modality to use is ultrasound.
Context: Mammography in dense breasts is challenging due to lesion obscuration by tissue overlap. Does tomosynthesis offers a solution? Aims: To study the impact of digital breast tomosynthesis DBT in characterizing lesions in breasts of different mammographic densities.
A mammogram is a type of X-ray of the breast. Your doctor may order a screening mammogram as a routine check. They can also be a tool for early diagnosis before you start showing symptoms of breast cancer.

What does it mean? Each BI RADS category reflects an increased suspicion in the interpretation of the radiologist for the likelihood of being diagnosed with breast cancer. However, there are really only four possible outcomes.
