This lecture series begins with an overview of hyperplastic breast changes, which are the primary cause of differential diagnostic problems in everyday radiology practice.

A) Fibrocystic change is one of the most frequently occurring hyperplastic breast changes. The noncalcified, solitary or multiple, ill-defined masses are a common concern for the breast imager.

B) The various types of microcalcifications occurring in the stagnating fluid found in the dilated duct and lobules of fibrocystic change cause considerable differential diagnostic problems for the breast imager.

C) This lecture explains the underlying pathophysiology of hyperplastic breast changes, which will help in overcoming many differential diagnostic problems.

D) Analyzing 3D histology images and correlating them with mammography, MRI, ultrasound are a key to understanding pathophysiology.
