Clinical, ultrasonographic and ecogrfia examinations are excellent morphological tools for the assessment of breast masses, but they cannot evaluate the vascularization of the lesions, that may give informations regarding their nature and, in the malignant subset, the aggressiveness, the response to therapy, the prognosis and the probability to metastatize.
It contains epithelium and has minimal malignant potential 8. There is significant local variation in this regard.
Has color Doppler a role in the evaluation of mammary lesions?
Color Doppler ultrasonography of the breast. Articles from Journal of Ultrasound are provided here courtesy of Springer. It is the most common breast mass in the adolescent and young adult population 1,3.

Giant juvenile fibroadenoma of the breast: a clinical case.
A schematic review of color Doppler diagnostic criteria, indicating a benign or malignant lesion, are described. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Color Doppler however is not conceived as a fibroadenkma examination, but associated with B-mode ultrasound that is quite effective as a diagnostic tool, often not requiring Doppler informations.
Fibroadenoma Breast fibroadenoma Fibroadenoma of breast Fibroadenomas Breast fibroadenomas Fibroadenomas of breast Fibroadenoma of the breast. These lesions are easily biopsied under ultrasound guidance. The diagnostic value of ultrasonography and color Doppler combined with fine needle aspiration FNA cytology for the detection of non-palpable axillary lymph node metastases in breast cancer patients has a high sensitivity and specificity when there are suspicious features.
Malignant tumors have a tendency to show increased vascularization, but avascular tumors may be found as well as hypervascular benign tumors.
Here below are presented examples where Color Doppler is valuable.
Breast imaging-reporting and data system (BI-RADS) | Radiology Reference Article |
Color Doppler flow image shows high vascularity in the mass B, C. Diagnostic imaging of phyllodes tumors: Phyllodes tumors are rare fibro-epithelial neoplasms; they may be classified as benign, borderline or malignant according to histological assessment of mitotic index, stromal hypercellularity and pleomorphism, and well circumscribed or invasive borders [6—8]. The evaluation of tumor response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy by means of physical examination, ultrasonography, and mammography has limitations on the basis of its morphological approach and the impossibility of distinguishing residual caner from fibrosis.
Color Doppler ultrasound has many other useful applications in the evaluation of diseases of the female and male breast, that are reviewed in the paper. Sonographic evaluation of early-stage breast cancers that undergo neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Incidence decreases after 40 years 4. Has color Doppler a role in the evaluation of mammary lesions?
Typically seen as a well-circumscribed, round to ovoid, or macrolobulated mass with generally uniform hypoechogenicity.
Fibroadenoma is a common benign breast lesion and results from the excess proliferation of connective tissue. Phyllodes tumor in B-mode ultrasound is appreciated as a solid, omogeneous lesion [6,7] Fig. Focal fibrocystic disease may present as a mass or focus lesion sometimes mimicking a malignant breast lesion [6,7].
Fibroadenomas have usually a harmonic vascularization with 3 vessel types: Papillary lesions and particularly carcinomas are hypervascularized, but caution and a very slight pressure is needed to appreciate the vascular stalks.
Fibroadenomas characteristically contain both stromal and epithelial cells.
The etiology is believed to be an end-organ hypersensitivity to normal levels of gonadal hormones.
