  • Figure 1
    Breast and axillary ultrasonography
     

    Breast ultrasonography: Diffuse hypoechoic area that occupied practically the entire right breast (yellow arrow). Also there is thickening of the skin (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Axillary ultrasound: two right adenopathies with pronounced cortical thickening (yellow arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Lymph nodes; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Dynamic subtracted breast MRI
     

    MRI (axial view): irregular heterogeneous, asymmetric nonmass enhancement in right breast (yellow arrow) and cutaneous thickening (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    MRI (coronal view): irregular heterogeneous, asymmetric nonmass enhancement in right breast (yellow arrow) and cutaneous thickening (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    MRI (sagital view): irregular heterogeneous, asymmetric nonmass enhancement in right breast (yellow arrow) and cutaneous thickening (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Functool and kinetic curve of the tumour
     

    Functool of the tumour (white arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Kinetic curve of the tumour: fast initial phase and plateau delayed phase (kinetic curve type 2)

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Additional findings at RMI
     

    Breast MRI T1: Irregular hypointense mass in the right breast (yellow star) Generalized thickening of the right skin (white arrow) and thickening of the right pectoral muscle (red arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: Soft tissues / Skin; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    Breast MRI T2: thickening and hyperintensity of the right pectoral muscle (red arrow), due to edema.

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Education; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
