Large format subgross (3D) histopathologic-imaging correlation.
The vast majority of mammograms show normal fibroglandular tissue with all its many variations, and without any pathologic lesion. The most difficult decision for the radiologist is to sign a "normal mammography report" and feel confident that she/he could account correctly for every nodular and linear density on the mammogram.
This lecture teaches the basis for skillful and efficient interpretation of the mammographic image by correlating 3-dimensional, subgross anatomy with the mammographic appearance of the normal breast. The result will be an increased confidence in reading mammograms and finding benign and malignant lesions when they are still small.
