Sample Name: Full-Field Digital Mammogram (FFDM) - 1
Description: Bilateral Screening Mammogram Full-Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) (Benign Findings)
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)
EXAM: Digital screening mammogram.
HISTORY: 51-year-old female presents for screening mammography. Patient denies personal history of breast cancer. Breast cancer was reported in her maternal aunt.
TECHNIQUE: Craniocaudal and mediolateral oblique projections of bilateral breasts were obtained on mm/dd/yy. Comparison is made with the previous performed on mm/dd/yy. iCAD Second Look proprietary software was utilized.
FINDINGS: The breasts demonstrate a mixture of adipose and fibroglandular elements. Composition appears similar. Multiple tiny punctate benign-appearing calcifications are visualized bilaterally. No dominant mass, areas of architecture distortion, or malignant-type calcifications are seen. Skin overlying both breasts is unremarkable.
IMPRESSION: Stable and benign mammographic findings. Continued yearly mammographic screening is recommended.
1. A certain percentage of cancers, probably 10% to 15%, will not be identified by mammography.
2. Lack of radiographic evidence of malignancy should not delay a biopsy if a clinically suspicious mass is present.
3. These images were obtained with FDA-approved digital mammography equipment, and iCAD SecondLook Software Version 7.2 was utilized.
