abstract

  • In our study, local recurrence after breast-conserving therapy for DCIS invariably contained DCIS; 35% of recurrences also contained invasive carcinoma. The most common mammographic pattern of local recurrence was calcifications in the tumorectomy quadrant that were morphologically similar to the original DCIS. These findings suggest that many of these local recurrences reflect failure to eradicate the primary DCIS. Mammography achieved high sensitivity in revealing these lesions: 85% of local recurrences and 92% of recurrences that were pure DCIS were detected solely by mammography.
