BI-RADS category 3 lesions under evaluation

This study carries out a retrospective evaluation of the characteristics of BI-RADS category 3 lesions, as well as proposing appropriate follow-up recommendations, detected in pre-operative MRIs of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.


Key points:

  • BI-RADS category 3 lesions on preoperative MRI had 0.8% malignancy rate.
  • All cancers occurred after 24-month follow-up.
  • Annual follow-up might be adequate for BI-RADS 3 detected on preoperative MRI.
