Case 16 continued

This focal asymmetric density was noticed on the screening mammogram, and subsequent spot compression magnification views are shown below.

Case 16 SCM:

  • What is your assessment?

      a. BI-RADS 1, Normal. The focal asymmetric density does not persist on diagnostic views.

      b. BI-RADS 2, Benign. Asymmetric glandular tissue is seen, with some benign-appearing microcalcifications.

      c. BI-RADS 3, Probably Benign. Asymmetric glandular tissue is seen, with some probably benign-appearing microcalcifications.

      d. BI-RADS 4, Suspicious. The focal asymmetric density is associated with heterogeneous calcifications.

      e. BI-RADS 5, Highly Suggestive of Malignancy. The focal asymmetric density is associated with classic pleomorphic calcifications consistent with DCIS.
