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 BIRADS 3 lesions have a 2% probability of being malignant.
The presence of a mass pushed the BIRADS classification to group 4, which required biopsy, even though the calcification pattern was benign.
Breast density, which can be categorized simply and reproducibly via the widely used four-level American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BIRADS) of mammographic classification, seemed like a promising candidate.
Readers rated the mammograms on a seven-point malignancy scale and used the classification of the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BIRADS).
The book has an overview of the ACR BIRADS classifications and a section specific to interventional procedures.
The patients diagnosed with suspicious fibroepithelial lesion and PT in CNB and the patients categorized as BIRADS 4B and 4C underwent surgical excision.
According to mammogram, the lesions were analysed on the basis of their location (relation to their quadrant), number of asymmetrical lesions, well defined or merging with the adjacent normal breast tissue, density of the lesion, margins, surrounding halo, the presence or absence of intramammary and axillary lesions, classified according to BIRADS classification.
The most appropriate combination in our study is the diagnostic type statistics, as defined in the BIRADS [22], because, in our practice, when a patient comes for a screening study, the latter is immediately completed by a diagnostic study if necessary, and only one report is issued; this statistic excludes category 0 (n = 8 patients) and category 6 (n = 2 patients) corresponding to a trivial number compared to the total of 1,049 patients.
