  • Figure 1
    Mammography
     

    Left and right craneo-caudal mammography (L-CC, R-CC, respectively) shows a round nodule, with obscured margins and high density, on the upper quartile line of the left breast.

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: Mammography; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Pathology;

    Left and right mediolateral oblique mammography (L-MLO, R-MLO, respectively) shows a round nodule, with obscured margins and high density, on the upper quartile line of the left breast.

  • Figure 2
    Left breast ultrasound
     

    Ultrasound shows on the upper quartile line of the left breast (at 12 o’clock position) a solid, round nodule with microlobulated margins, predominantly isoechoic, with posterior enhancement. The size is 2 x 1.6 x...

  • Figure 3
    MRI T1 and T2 WI
     

    MRI shows a round, circumscribed nodule on the left breast. It is hypointense on T1-WI and hyperintense on T2-WI, due to its mucinous component.

  • Figure 4
    Dynamic subtracted breast MR images
     

    Dynamic subtracted breast MRI shows a nodule with heterogeneous internal enhancement.

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Pathology;

    The nodule shows a curve type I.
