BI-RADS is an acronym for Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System, a quality assurance tool originally designed for use with mammography. The system is a. utilizada en el BIRADS ya es ampliamente conocida, aún siguen utilizándose términos que no son usados en la clasificación y las categorías a veces son. BI-RADS classification is proposed by the American College of Radiology (ACR), last updated in November , and is a widely used classification system at.

This patient presented with a mass on the mammogram at screening, which was assigned as BI-RADS 0 needs additional imaging evaluation.

Mass A ‘Mass’ is a space occupying 3D lesion seen in two different projections. Continue with follow up images. 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. Asymmetry as an area of fibroglandulair tissue visible on only one mammographic projection, mostly caused by superimposition of normal breast tissue.

Describe any significant finding using standardized terminology. However in the right breast a group of amorphous and fine pleomorphic calcifications was seen. For example, extreme patient anxiety or plans birds pregnancyplans for breast augmentation or reduction surgery, or if synchronous carcinoma is present. Assuming stability perform a second short term follow-up after 6 months With mammography: Awaiting previous examinations for comparison should only take place if they are required to make a final assessment Clasicicacion to a final assessment category.

This could be for instance ectopic glandular tissue within a heterogeneously dense breast.


Echogenicity can contribute to the assessment of a lesion, together with other feature categories. That is, there is something abnormal on mammogram but it is not breast cancer or malignant in any way. Something benign like a cyst.

Always describe in two paragraphs integrated in a single report.

This has to be differentiated from a mass. It is extremely rare for breast cancer to be low density.

So add the following sentence in your report: By subdividing Category 4 into 4A, 4B and 4Cit is encouraged that relevant probabilities for malignancy be indicated within this category so the patient and her physician can make an informed decision on the ultimate course of action. This is a benign finding. BI-RADS 2 DO Agree in a group practice on whether and clasificafion to describe benign findings in a report Use in screening or in diagnostic imaging when a benign finding is present Use in the presence of bilateral lymphadenopathy, probably reactive or infectious in origin Use in diagnostic imaging and recommend management if appropriate, – as in abscess or hematoma – as in implant rupture and other foreign bodies DON’T Don’t use when a benign finding is present but not described in the report, then use Category 1.

Clasificaciom The palpable cyst was painful, after informed consent uncomplicated puncture for suction of the cyst was performed. The initial short-term follow-up of a BI-RADS 3 lesion is a unilateral mammogram at 6 months, then a bilateral follow-up examination at 12 months.

Compare to previous studies. We will first discuss the breast imaging lexicon of mammography and ultrasound and then discuss in more detail the final assessment categories and the do’s and don’ts in these categories.

American College of Radiology. In this patient this is not a normal variant, since there are associated features, that indicate the possibility of malignancy like skin thickening, thickened septa and subtle nipple retraction.

Lateral in the mamografiia breast, concordant with the palpable lump, there is a mass with an oval shape and margin, partially circumscribed and partially obscured. This allows for concise and unambiguous understanding of patient records between multiple doctors and clasificacio facilities.

Another clasifixacion in breast density is whether the breasts are heterogeneously dense that is both the same. Indication for examination Painful mobile lump, lateral in right breast. Calcifications The distribution should be measured by approximation of its greatest linear dimension.

Don’t recommend MRI to further evaluate a probably benign finding. The mass is evidently in another region of the breast. Associated features play a role in the final assessment.

Then use Category 4. Verbal discussions between radiologist and referring mamogeafia should be documented in the report. For instance if there is a mass that causes architectural distortion, the likelihood of malignancy is greater than in the case of a mass without distortion.
