Patient
female, 27 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    B-mode and Colour Doppler ultrasound
     

    Complex cystic mass with thickened, irregular walls and mural nodules

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

    Colour Doppler ultrasound shows peripheral vascularisation

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound-Colour Doppler; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;

    After fine needle aspiration there was incomplete resolution of the mass

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Imaging sequences; Special Focus: Neoplasia;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    MRI T1 and T2 WI
     

    The lesion appeared as a well-defined hypo-intense mass on unenhanced axial T1-weighted image

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

    Hyperintense cystic aspect associated with internal septa and mural nodules on T2-WI

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

    Dynamic subtracted breast MRI shows irregular walls and internal nodules with intense contrast enhancement
