After a short review of the imaging biomarkers, this lecture shows the initial cases in the long series when the non-calcified asymmetric density is associated with architectural distortion, representing the most challenging and highly fatal, diffusely infiltrating breast malignancy.
Asymmetric densities with no associated microcalcifications on the mammogram are a considerable challenge for the radiologist reading mammograms. It is important to distinguish between asymmetric densities corresponding to normal fibroglandular tissue (in order to cut back on unnecessary call-back rate) and the non-calcified malignant or benign breast lesions (in order to achieve high sensitivity). The lecture series "Asymmetric densities with no associated microcalcifications on the mammogram" provide the radiologists detailed, practical information from the basics through the most complex breast malignancies. The lecture series are interactive, involving the audience in the screening process and the immediate workup of the finding uses the multimodality approach to arrive at the correct diagnosis.
This lecture is PART IX.
