Introduction of inflammatory breast disease and review of radiologic findings and clinical manifestation with practical example of mammography andultrasound. Categorization of inflammatory breast disease and differential diagnosis from the inflammatory breast cancer Introduction of US-guided abscess treatment and comparision with traditional surgical treatment
Imaging findings OR Procedure details
I. Pyogenic mastitis and abscess Clinical manifestation : pain and erythema Radiologic findings Mammography : not useful (US: ideal imaging) Mastitis: diffuse or focal skin and trabecular thickening from breast edema Abscess: Ill-defined noncalcified mass US findings of mastitis Decreased parenchymal echogenicity or increased fat echogenicity Skin thickening Increased vascularity on color Doppler Reactive or enlarged axillary LNs Dilated lymphatics. US findings of breast abscess Round, oval,...
