The purpose was to identify features of malignant and non-malignant neoplastic breast disease on galactography and to estimate their predictive value. This is the largest reported study correlating galactographic morphological patterns with histopathology and the only blinded study. The study included 351 consecutive galactograms and 161 breast biopsies performed in patients with nipple discharge over a 10-year period. Three radiologists, blinded to clinical data and histological results, re… CONTINUE READING
