Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzal J. Jobanplmn / M / 73 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzna.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Chest and Chest Wall.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O swelling/nodule along the lateral margin of the left breast/pectoral region.
M.R.I of the chest and chestwall was performed using the following parameters :
8 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted axial images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal and coronal images.
4 mm thick STIR axial images.
There is seen an approximately 1.7 x 1.0 x 2.0 cms sized well-defined, intermediate signal intensity mass lesion on the T1 Weighted images in the supero-lateral quadrant of the left breast just postero-lateral to the left nipple. This lesion appears hyperintense on the T2 Weighted and STIR images. The subareolar tissue also shows similar signal intensity characteristics. There is no obvious involvement of the left pectoral muscles. The subcutaneous fat does not show evidence of streaking. No obvious abnormally enlarged left axillary lymph nodes are noted.
The visualized right breast region is unremarkable.
No obvious mediastinal mass lesion or mediastinal lymph nodal enlargement is identified.
Mass lesion in the supero-lateral quadrant of the left breast with thickening of the subareolar tissue as described is not specific a single etiology. A malignant lesion should be ruled out.
There is no chest wall involvement or axillary lymph nodal enlargement identified.
