This unit of study provides an explanation of the recommended terminology used in the mammography report, as recommended by the American College of Radiology. This information will enable the mammographer to differentiate between a negative report with benign findings and a report that identifies abnormal findings. The sensitivity and specificity of mammography, as well as the ACR Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) 2013 edition, are explained. Breast imaging lexicon (terminology) is defined as it relates to the description of masses, calcifications, and areas of asymmetry. The seven final assessment categories and four breast tissue composition categories are also defined. Examples of mammography reports are included for review.
