Sonographic and mammographic appearances of breast hemangioma.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to retrospectively evaluate the clinical, imaging, and pathologic findings of breast hemangiomas in 16 patients. CONCLUSION A mass displaying an oval or lobular shape with well-circumscribed or microlobulated margins on mammography and sonography, and in a superficial location, should alert the radiologist to the possible diagnosis of hemangioma. Imaging-guided biopsy appears sufficiently reliable to rule out any malignant or premalignant component and to avoid a surgical excision if doing so is clinically appropriate.
