Both mammography and standard ultrasound US rely upon subjective criteria within the breast imaging reporting and data system BI-RADS to provide more uniform interpretation outcomes, as well as differentiation and risk stratification of associated abnormalities. In addition, the technical performance and professional interpretation of both tests suffer from machine and operator dependence. We have been developing a new technique for breast imaging that is based on ultrasound tomography which quantifies tissue characteristics while also producing 3-D images of breast anatomy.
The breast is one of the most commonly treated sites in radiation oncology. Therefore it helps to know the correct coding. In this case use C

It also compliments X-ray mammography in further evaluation and characterization of breast masses and thus avoids surgeries in benign breast diseases and pathology. Method: For USG examination of the breast lumps, a linear-array transducer of MHz frequency is required with a good resolution machine.
About 1 in every 11 women eventually develops breast cancer. However, when breast cancer is found early and treated immediately, the chances for cure are much improved. For this reason, all women over the age of 18 should be sure to perform monthly self-exams. A breast self-exam checks for lumps, thickening, dimples in the breast, and discharge from the nipple.

A year-old female with a left breast biopsy performed at an outside institution that was consistent with intraductal carcinoma DCIS and invasive ductal carcinoma presents for diagnostic mammography and evaluation. The imaging of the right breast is normal not shown. This is helpful to know when planning preoperative localization.
