An audit of patients clinically deemed as high risk for malignant breast pathology at the Helen Joseph Hospital Breast Clinic

CONCLUSION: BI-RADS findings correspond to similar studies, however, a large number of benign breast disease was diagnosed. This may indicate heightened clinical awareness of breast cancer diagnosis and early detection. A significant percentage of malignancies presented as locally advanced. Except for a lower number of invasive lobular carcinoma, the histological spectrum of malignant disease is similar to comparative studies.PMID:34515426

ConclusionThe ability of mammography and breast ultrasound to accurately measure residual tumor size following neoadjuvant chemotherapy compared to Breast MRI measurement of the residual tumor demonstrated sensitivity of 94.12 % and specificity of 83.33% with high accuracy value reaching to 91.30 %. Even that the MRI is proved to be of high accuracy in detecting residual tumor, sonomammographic imaging isa cost-effective imaging modality than the MRI with sensitivity and specificity near to that of MRI.
