Breast MRI Improves PPV For BI-RADS Category 4B Lesions, Study Indicates.

Aunt Minnie (6/6) reports that according to a study published online May 28 in Clinical Radiology, “breast MRI improves the positive predictive value (PPV) of BI-RADS category 4B (moderate suspicion of malignancy) for mammographic microcalcifications.” Researchers concluded, “If amorphous microcalcification with regional or grouped distribution on mammography shows no enhancement on MRI, follow-up could be considered rather than immediate biopsy,” adding, “In addition, breast MRI might have the potential to guide the best site to biopsy in category 4B microcalcification.”
