The most frequently occurring malignant type calcifications on the mammogram
Overview of Carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the breast:
1) CIS is a heterogeneous disease
2) An understanding of the underlying pathologic process leading to the development of the microcalcifications is the best way to interpret the mammographic findings.
3) Features of Group 1A crushed stone-like calcifications are:
