Dr. Jules Sumkin presents a case of a 46-year-old woman with indeterminate calcifications in her left breast. Upon review of her DBT study, an unsuspected area of architectural distortion in the contralateral right breast was discovered. This area was not apparent in the original 2D mammogram, nor was it visible when the patient was recalled for additional mammographic views and targeted ultrasound.
Additionally, Dr. Marguerite Bonaventura presents a 70-year-old female who underwent her annual screening mammogram, during which a nodular density was found in the outer half of the right breast.
