Comparative evaluation of mammography, Sonography and magnetic resonance imaging in diagnosing malignant breast lesions
The purpose of this study is to assess the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting malignant breast lesions and to compare it to mammography and sonography.
Subjects and Methods: 25 females with breast complaints were subjected to mammography, sonography and MRI. The breast lesions were classified as benign and malignant on the imaging features of these modalities. The reference standard was considered on the basis of histopathologic confirmation of these lesions.
Results: The sensitivity and specificity of MRI was superior to mammography and sonography in detecting malignant breast lesions.
Conclusion: MRI has improved the diagnostic efficacy in early detection of breast cancer with additional advantage of detecting lesions in dense breast and in determining the exact extent of the lesion which guides treatment plan.
