Abstract
Background: High resolution ultrasonography is useful investigation modality for evaluation of breast lumps.
Aim of the study: To study the ultrasonographic features of breast lumps and to correlate the findings with fine needle aspiration cytology.
Materials and Methods: A prospective study done on 70 patients of breast lumps who attended department of Radiology, over a period 2 years ie, from January 2018 to November 2020.
Results: In the Present study on HRUSG breast 60 cases (85.7%) were circumscribed masses and 10 cases (14.2%) were not circumscribed masses. Calcification and necrosis were noted in 07 malignant cases. 09(12.8%) of our malignant cases showed markedly hypoechoic echotexture.
Conclusion: Specificity of HRUSG in diagnosing breast lumps was found to be 98.3% in our study.
