Abstract

A retrospective study was conducted to demonstrate the potential role of dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCEMRI) in the detection of breast lesions in 15 patients with nipple discharge. The DCEMRI findings were compared and correlated with the findings of ultrasonography and mammography. The results revealed that the character of the nipple discharge was mostly bloody and in few cases were serous. The imaging findings revealed that DCEMRI is highly sensitive and specific in the detection of breast canner and the histopathological correlation in such detection was highly significant (p<0.001) as compared to ultrasonography and mammography finding.
