 Ultrasound Findings
Shape: Mass
Oval, elliptical or egg-shaped
Round
Irregular
Orientation: Parallel - Long axis of lesion parallels the skin line ("wider than tall" or horizontal)
Not parallel - Long axis, not oriented along the skin line ("taller than wide" or vertical, includes round)
Margin: Circumscribed
Indistinct
Angular
Microlobulated
Spiculated
Lesion boundary: Abrupt interface
Echogenic halo
Echo pattern: Anechoic
Hyperechoic
Complex mass
Hypoechoic
Isoechoic
Acoustic features: No posterior shadowing or enhancement
Enhancement, increased posterior echos
Shadowing, decreased posterior echos; edge shadows are excluded
Combined pattern
Surrounding tissue: Duct changes - Abnormal caliber and/or arborization
Cooper`s ligament changes - Straightening or thickening of Cooper`s ligaments
Edema-Increased echogenicity of surrounding tissue; reticulated pattern of angular, hypoechoic lines
Architectural distortion
Skin thickening - focal or diffuse
Skin retraction/irregularity
Calcifications: Macrocalcifications - greater than or equal to 0.5 mm in size
Microcalcifications outside of mass. Echogenic foci that do not occupy the entire acoustic beam and do not shadow. Less than 0.5 mm in diameter
Microcalcifications in mass. Embedded in a mass, microcalcifications are well depicted. The punctate, hyperechoic foci will be conspicuous in a hypoechoic mass
Vascularity: Not Present or not assessed
Present in lesion
Present immediately adjacent to lesion
Diffusely increased vascularity in surrounding tissue
Location: In or on skin

Central enhancement
Nonmass like enhancement distribution: Focal area, enhancement in a confined area, less than 25% of quadrant

Ductal, enhancement in a line that may have branching, conforming to a duct
Segmental, triangular region of enhancement, apex pointing to nipple, suggesting a duct or its branches
Regional, enhancement in a large volume of tissue not conforming to a ductal distribution, geographic
Multiple regions enhancement in at least two large volumes of tissue not conforming to a ductal distribution, multiple geographic areas, patchy areas of enhancement
Diffuse enhancement distributed uniformly throughout the breast
