Abstract

Detection and management of a breast mass requires all optimal environment for interpretation, relevant use of clinical information, technically excellent imaging procedures, proper interpretation of the findings, and pertinent recommendations. Masses suspicious for malignancy by only a single modality ideally should undergo some form of biopsy, as the consequences of delayed diagnosis of breast cancer can be devastating. Early invasive breast cancer can be identified and treated if the appropriate evaluation is performed.
