3D histopathology demonstrates the structural elements of the normal breast tissue and the alterations caused by benign and malignant breast diseases. Breast imaging-3D histopathologic correlation can be considered the "Mother of knowledge" for every breast imager.
Large format thick section/subgross/3D histopathology bridges the gap between the high resolution conventional histopathology and the low resolution breast imaging results (mammograms, ultrasound, MEI). 3D histopathology demonstrates the structural elements of the normal breast tissue and the alterations caused by benign and malignant breast diseases. Correlating the 3D histopathology images with the mammograms explains the nodular and linear densities on the mammogram, understanding the different mammographic parenchymal patterns, This results in increased confidence when reading large volume of screening mammograms. In addition, constant correlation of the subgross/3D histopathologic images of the benign and malignant breast diseases with their appearance on the mammogram and other imaging modalities leads to better understanding breast pathology, more accurate diagnosis and management of the individual cases.
