PURPOSE To characterize the ultrasonographic (US) appearance of invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) and to assess the potential role of US in the earlier detection of ILC. MATERIALS AND METHODS US scans in 19 patients with ILC were retrospectively studied for the presence of a mass, characteristics of the margins, internal echogenicity, and attenuation effects. RESULTS US showed masses in 13 of the 19 patients (68% sensitivity). Irregularly marginated masses with heterogeneous internal echoes… CONTINUE READING
