e-CASES: Doubt regarding architectural distortion of the right upper lateral quadrant, corresponding to superimpositions with tomosynthesis.

History

Systematic screening on hormone replacement treatment.
No personal or family history implying a risk at the breast level.

Findings

Digital mammograms show dense, type III breast tissue with very rare macro-calcifications, with no suspicious site of micro-calcifications.
Doubt regarding the architectural distortion of the right upper lateral quadrant, corresponding to superimpositions with tomosynthesis.
No anomaly on MRI.
ACR 2 bilateral.


Diagnosis

Doubt regarding architectural distortion of the right upper lateral quadrant, corresponding to superimpositions with tomosynthesis.


Key points

The differential diagnosis between genuine architectural distortion and a simple superimposition of breast structures is one of the strong points of tomosynthesis, particularly in the densest areas of a breast.
