Concordant with the lump and the mass on the mammogram there is an oval simple cyst, parallel orientation, circumscribed, Anechoic with posterior enhancement.

They are a thing to not care about, unless you are a radiologist. The term density describes the degree of x-ray attenuation of breast tissue but not discrete mammographic findings. DO Use if additional mammographic imaging is needed: This proved to be multifocal DCIS with areas of invasive carcinoma. Describe the indication for the study. Use the morphological descriptors: Appropriate Action Should Be Taken: The margin of a lesion can be: Management The palpable cyst was painful, after informed consent uncomplicated puncture for suction of the cyst was performed.

This proved to be DCIS with invasive carcinoma.

It also facilitates outcome monitoring and quality assessment. Awaiting previous examinations for comparison should only take place if they are required to make a final assessment Conclude to a final assessment category. The accuracy statistics are generally calculated once a year and they are important in quality assurance, that is they tell the radiologist whether they are doing a good job or not.


Global asymmetry consisting of an asymmetry over at least one quarter of the breast and is usually a normal variant. First describe the breast composition. Due to the dense fibroglandular tissue the tumor is not well seen.

Notice the focal skin retraction. Sometimes repeated mammographic imaging with markers on the lesion found with US can be helpful.

The breasts are almost entirely fatty. Distribution of calcifications The arrangement of calcifications, the distribution, is at least as important as morphology. Compare to previous studies.

So add the following sentence in your report: In the paragraph on location we will discuss how we can be sure that the lymph node that we found with ultrasound is indeed the same as the mammographic mass. All fat-containing lesions are typically benign. Retrieved from ” https: American College of Radiology.

It was discussed with the patient and the referring general practitioner, that in case of BI-RADS 4 a referral to the breast clinic is advised.

Assuming stability perform a follow-up after one year and optionally another year.

Lateral in the right breast, concordant with the palpable lump, there is a mass with an oval shape and margin, partially circumscribed and partially obscured. Describe any significant finding using standardized terminology. Here a non-palpable sharply defined mass with a group of punctate calcifications.

Findings No previous exams available. The benefit of BI-RADS to radiologists is that it forces them to think about which category their findings will fit into and when they assign each case a category it then becomes possible to calculate accuracy statistics. No previous history of breast pathology.

This is also a suspicious finding. These are standardized numerical codes typically assigned by a radiologist after interpreting a mammogram.
