abstract

  • Among MR imaging-detected breast lesions referred for biopsy, carcinoma was found in 25%, of which half were DCIS. Features with the highest PPV were spiculated margin, rim enhancement, and irregular shape for mass lesions and segmental or clumped linear and ductal enhancement for nonmass lesions. Final assessment categories were significant predictors of carcinoma.
