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.

No need to describe the cyst in detail: Coarse heterogeneous BI-RADS 4B Irregular, conspicuous calcifications that are generally between 0,5 mm and 1 mm and tend to coalesce but are smaller than dystrophic calcifications.

The margins are partially circumscribed and partially not circumscribed with some microlobulations.

This has to be differentiated from a mass. Describe the indication for the study. In the right breast at least 2 more smaller cysts. So, your medical advisor will request an immediate biopsy.

The images biradx a fat-containing lesion with a popcorn-like calcification.

When additional imaging studies are completed, a final assessment is made. Here an example of global asymmetry. 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. If Ultrasound is performed, mention if the US is targeted to a specific location or supplementary screening. Due to the dense fibroglandular tissue the tumor is not well seen.

Historically this would have been called an ACR 2: These findings may have associated features, like for instance a mass can be accompanied with skin thickening, nipple retraction, calcifications etc. Management After informed consent of the patient a 14G core needle biopsy was performed, two specimens were obtained.


In BI-RADS the use of percentages is discouraged, because in individual cases it is more important to take into account the chance that a mass can be obscured by fibroglandular tissue than the percentage of breast density as an indicator for breast cancer risk.

No indication for follow-up, unless symptoms return, as explained to the patient.

BI-RADS mammogram classifications are generalizations and tend to revolve around the presence and type of microcalcifications. Simple cyst Complicated cyst Clustered microcysts Mass in or on clasificaciion Foreign body including implants Lympnodes- intramammary Lymph nodes- axillary Vascular abnormalities Postsurgical fluid collection Fat necrosis.

So, further work-up may include spot compression, magnification, or breast ultrasound. They are a thing to not care about, unless you are a radiologist. No previous exams available. Asymmetries Findings that represent unilateral deposits of fibroglandulair tissue not conforming to the definition of a mass.

Referral from general practitioner. Findings that represent unilateral deposits coasificacion fibroglandulair tissue not conforming to the definition of a mass. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Standard Reporting Describe the indication for the study. Yes, I would want a biopsy.

Forward to More on Birads Category 4 and 5 or Back to our breast cancer screening list or to the new homepage or to our index of new posts on incidence and survival rates. Additional ultrasound demonstrated that the mass classificacion caused by an intramammary lymph node. After chemotherapy the tumor is not visible on the mammogram.

The clasificaclon rationale for using category 5 is that if the percutaneous tissue diagnosis is nonmalignant, this automatically should be considered as discordant. Don’t recommend MRI to further evaluate a benign finding. On US poorly characterized compared with mammography, but can be recognized as echogenic foci, particularly when in a mass.


BI-RADS – Wikipedia

Homogeneous echotexture-fat Homogeneous echotexture-fibroglandular Heterogeneous echotexture. Actually, radiologists were using 4 categories of mammogram density coding before bi rads existed.

Don’t recommend MRI to further evaluate a probably benign finding. Asymmetries appear similar to other discrete areas of fibroglandulair tissue except that they are unitaleral, with no mirror-image correlate in the opposite breast. Verbal discussions between radiologist, patient and referring clinician should be documented in the original report or in an addendum. Mass Longest axis of a lesion and a second measurement at right angles.

Ultrasound of the region demonstrated an irregular mass, which proved to be an adenocarcinoma with fine needle aspiration FNA. Alone it has little specificity. Category 6 indicates a known cancer, proven by biopsy. Associated features play a role in the final assessment. The term architectural distortion is used, when the normal architecture is distorted with no definite mass visible. Follow-up at 6, 12 and 24 months showed no change and the final assessment was changed into a Category 2. Assuming stability perform a follow-up after one year and optionally after another year.

If the findings shows no change in the follow up the final assessment is changed to BI-RADS 2 benign and no further follow up is needed. Contrast was injected into the node and a repeated mammogram was performed. Communicate unsuspected findings with the referring clinician.

A complete set of location descriptors consists of: Verbal discussions between radiologist, patient or referring clinician should be documented in the report. Another factor in breast density is whether the breasts are heterogeneously dense that is both the same.
