Case of the week (week 23, 2021)

Could MammoScreen help you detect cancer earlier?

69-year-old patient, screening mammogram.

MammoScreen points to an increased opacity at the union of the outer quadrants of the right breast with a red flag (MammoScreen Score 9).

The lesion was already present on the 2019 exam and a spot compression was made.

An additional ultrasound was performed in 2021 and did not find any suspicious lesions.

Since there is nevertheless a red flag, a breast MRI is requested and finds a suspicious superior-external lesion.

Biopsy results: infiltrating adenocarcinoma associated with intracanal carcinoma..
