Diagnosis: Infiltrating ductal carcinoma

History: 77 year-old woman who has not had an annual mammogram for more than one year. No personal or family history of breast cancer, and no current hormone usage.

Findings: Segmental distribution of well-defined heterogeneous and small linear calcifications measuring a total length of approximately 4cm. This cluster of calcifications is located on the outer aspect of the left breast in the posterior third at approximately the 3:00 radian. There is increased tissue density associated with the calcifications.

Ddx: Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) Benign Ductal Calcifications Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma

Dxhow: Stereotatic Core Biopsy.

Exam: No palpable abnormality in either breast.

No MeSH data available.


Specimen radiograph demonstrating multiple biopsy cores, containing microcalcifications.  This was a successful biopsy sampling, and yielded the diagnosis.
