Ultrasound and MRI in the evaluation of mammographic BI-RADS 4 and 5 microcalcifications

 

 

By Dr AH Pustahija and Dr B Brkljacic

Microcalcifications are the common first sign of malignancy on mammography and present a diagnostic challenge. Biopsies of microcalcifications identified by mammography have a low positive predictive value due to the low specificity of mammography. Thus, a large proportion of biopsies of microcalcifications yield benign results, and so potentially could have been avoided.
