If Ultrasound is performed, mention if the US is targeted to a specific location or supplementary screening.

Describe the breast composition. Describe any significant finding using standardized terminology. Use the morphological descriptors: mass, asymmetry, architectural distortion and calcifications.

These findings may have associated features, like for instance a mass can be accompanied with skin thickening, nipple retraction, calcifications etc.

Integrate mammography and US-findings in a single report. Compare to previous studies. Awaiting previous examinations for comparison should only take place if they are required to make a final assessment Conclude to a final assessment category.

If Mammography and US are performed: overall assessment should be based on the most abnormal of the two breasts, based on the highest likelihood of malignancy. Give management recommendations. Communicate unexpected findings with the referring clinician.

Verbal discussions between radiologist, patient or referring clinician should be documented in the report. Mammography and Ultrasound Lexicon The table shows a summary of the mammography and ultrasound lexicon. Enlarge the table by clicking on the image.

First describe the breast composition. When there is a significant finding use the descriptors in the table.

The ultrasound lexicon has many similarities to the mammography lexicon, but there are some descriptors that are specific for ultrasound. We will discuss the lexicon in more detail in a moment.

We will first discuss the breast imaging lexicon of mammography and ultrasound and then discuss in more detail the final assessment categories and the do's and don'ts in these categories.

In BI-RADS the use of percentages is discouraged, because in individual cases it is more important to take into account the chance that a mass can be obscured by fibroglandular tissue than the percentage of breast density as an indicator for breast cancer risk.

Inappropriate use of BI-RADS Category 3: Learning from mistakes

In the BI-RADS edition the assignment of the breast composition is changed into a, b, c and d-categories followed by a description: a- The breast are almost entirely fatty.

Mammography is highly sensitive in this setting. The term density describes the degree of x-ray attenuation of breast tissue but not discrete mammographic findings. Some areas in the breasts are sufficiently dense to obscure small masses.

The fibroglandular tissue in the upper part is sufficiently dense to obscure small masses.

So it is called c, because small masses can be obscured. Mass A 'Mass' is a space occupying 3D lesion seen in two different projections.

If a potential mass is seen in only a single projection it should be called a 'asymmetry' until its three-dimensionality is confirmed.

This case illustrates the difficulty in evaluating one-view asymmetries and the importance of attention to change at follow-up. Any new or enlarging asymmetry that cannot be attributed to summation artifact should be considered suspicious, with biopsy recommended instead of follow-up.

The diagnostic spot magnification view showed the asymmetry persisted, but ultrasound evaluation was negative. The 6-month follow-up diagnostic exam Figure 3B demonstrated the medial asymmetry had enlarged and was now identified on two views.

Sonographic evaluation at follow-up demonstrated a 3-cm irregular, spiculated mass Figure 3C. The patient subsequently underwent ultrasound guided core biopsy, which revealed invasive lobular carcinoma. Any asymmetry seen on a baseline screening mammogram, or an exam without comparisons that is confirmed with diagnostic mammography and is without ultrasound correlate, can be considered for short-term follow-up, stereotactic biopsy, or surgical excision.

In this case, attention to suspicious changes at follow-up led to the correct assessment and a BI-RADS upgrade, with recommendation for biopsy. Furthermore, the MRI may not resolve or aid clarification of the finding. For these reasons, the interpreting radiologist should issue a final BI-RADS assessment to the diagnostic mammogram or ultrasound. Architectural distortion Architectural distortion without a correlative history of surgical scar is considered suspicious and should be biopsied.

Spot magnification views Figure 4A showed persistent architectural distortion with no sonographic correlate, and the finding was assessed BI-RADS 3, probably benign, with short-term follow-up recommended. Pathology returned a complex sclerosing lesion.

Although the architectural distortion was stable at short-term follow-up, the interpreting radiologist made the most correct decision to biopsy the finding as this patient had no history of breast surgery.

Palpable mass Scrutinizing mass shape and margins is crucial in gauging suspicion of malignancy. Even a small mass seen with ultrasound should be considered suspicious if the margins are non-circumscribed.

There was no mammographic correlate, but a small mass on ultrasound Figure 5A correlated with the palpable area. This 7-mm correlative mass was characterized as oval and non-circumscribed, was assigned BI-RADS category 3, and short-term follow-up was recommended. Follow-up ultrasound Figures 5B showed a 2-cm irregular mass with microlobulated and angular margins.

Additionally, a left axillary lymph node with eccentric cortical thickening was identified Figure 5C. Ultrasound-guided core biopsy of the mass was performed, with pathology returning invasive ductal carcinoma and metastatic involvement of the axillary lymph node.

As discussed previously, negative ultrasound findings should not deter recommendation for biopsy of a suspicious mammographic finding. Likewise, a negative mammogram should not deter biopsy recommendation of a suspicious ultrasound finding. In this case, the initial mammogram was noncontributory, but the mass was seen with ultrasound.

Category 3 is reserved for cases only after a complete diagnostic imaging work-up has been performed and the finding has been shown to meet probably benign criteria.The margin of a lesion can be: Circumscribed historically well-defined.

If it does, select the reader you desire.

It is information like the above that has led to the introduction of wide-ranging legislation surrounding breast cancer screening in countries like the United States. Furthermore, these radiologists were all generalists and not dedicated breast imagers.
