Course Description

After completing the material in this article, the learner should be able to:
1. Recognize that malignant architectural distortions are more likely to be visible on both tomosynthesis and 2D on mammography, as well as on ultrasound;
2. Recognize that although likelihood of cancer is lower in architectural distortions seen only on tomosynthesis as compared to those also seen on 2D and ultrasound, it is not low enough to obviate biopsy; and
3. Recognize that tomosynthesis-only detected cancers are more likely to have an indolent biological profile and associated with better prognosis.
