In eight cases, calcifications were evident at radiography as well as at histologic evaluation. Four cases were malignant and four were benign, and in one case in which calcification was not evident at either radiographic or histologic evaluation, a benign process was confirmed at surgical excision. Radiography of the specimen is a key… CONTINUE READING
