BIRADS

(bī′rădz″) [Acronym fm. Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System]
A classification system developed by the American College of Radiology to characterize findings obtained during breast imaging. Breast imaging may be done by mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, and/or ultrasonography. Category 1 findings are considered normal. Categories 2 and 3 are considered to have minor abnormalities, and those in category 3 require follow-up testing within a half year. Categories 4 and 5 are “suspicious” and “worrisome” for cancer, respectively.

The current study was planned to evaluate the inter-and intra-observer variability among radiologists in assessing breast density and BIRADS characterisation.
Patients with BIRADS 3, 4 and 5 masses on ultrasound and mammography have undergone ultrasound-guided core biopsy of the mass as routine practice in this department since 2007 (limiting the study period).
De 110 pacientes con lesiones mamarias biopsiadas, 41 no cumplieron con los criterios de inclusion: 10 no contaban con resultados de estudio histopatologico, 16 no tenian calificacion de BIRADS y 15 no contaban con ninguno de los dos criterios; por lo que se realizo el analisis de las 69 pacientes restantes.
A receiver-operator analysis showed that for all 12 readers, the combined modality of tomosynthesis and FFDM was superior to FFDM alone when using the forced BIRADS score and the probability of malignancy scale.
Second, because use of the BIRADS reporting categories was initiated in NBCCEDP in 1991 (before BIRADS was officially disseminated to U.
There appeared no axillary lymphadenopathy The final classification of the mass was considered to be in BIRADS category 4A.
From 756 patients, 143 patients who had BIRADS 3 and 4 mass were selected for the study.
The findings were reported according to the American College of Radiology's BIRADS sonographic classification.
Increased breast density is generally defined as breasts with BIRADS density assessments of 3 and 4 (heterogeneously dense and extremely dense breast tissue).
6] Patients with BIRADS 3 and 4 lesions were recalled for short-term follow-up, further imaging or tissue acquisition.
