What is a DCIS lesion?
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive type of breast cancer with highly variable potential of becoming invasive and affecting mortality. Currently, many patients with DCIS are overtreated due to the lack of specific biomarkers that distinguish low risk lesions from those with a higher risk of progression.
What does ductal carcinoma look like on ultrasound?
The most frequent sonographic manifestation of DCIS in the study was a hypoechoic solid lesion with irregular shape, indistinct or angular margin, and normal acoustic transmission; particularly, more than half of the cases showed microcalcifications (n = 63, 63%).
What does invasive lobular carcinoma look like on ultrasound?
Breast ultrasound An ill-defined heterogenous infiltrating area of low echogenicity with disproportionate posterior shadowing is one of the sonographic characteristics of invasive lobular carcinoma.
Does ductal carcinoma show on ultrasound?
Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ, or DCIS, may show up on breast imaging in a variety of ways. This includes mammography, ultrasound and breast MRI. The most common presentation of DCIS on mammography involves the appearance of calcifications.
How is invasive lobular carcinoma diagnosed?
Tests and procedures used to diagnose invasive lobular carcinoma include:
- Mammogram. A mammogram creates an X-ray image of your breast.
- Ultrasound. Ultrasound uses sound waves to create pictures of your breast.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
- Removing a sample of tissue for testing (biopsy).
