Contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) is an emerging imaging modality that can serve as an adjunct to contrast-enhanced dynamic breast MRI and has potential value in both the screening and diagnostic settings. Dedicated CEM-biopsy systems are not currently commercially available. Hence, CEM-only visualized lesions undergo additional evaluation and biopsy using either ultrasound or MRI. This presentation describes the utility of targeted US in the evaluation of CEM-only visualized abnormal enhancements.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify the indications for CEM in the screening and diagnostic setting
- Define the work-up algorithm for abnormal lesions detected only on CEM
- Describe the utility of targeted ultrasound in the characterization and potential biopsy of CEM-only detected lesions
- Appreciate the frequency of malignancy of CEM-detected lesions
- Identify the characteristics of CEM-detected lesions that are associated with malignancy
