Sommario Il color Doppler ha un ruolo nella valutazione delle lesioni mammarie? When a lesion has the typical features of a fibroadenoma on ultrasound and there are no clinical red flags they can be safely followed clinically. Fibroadenomas have usually a harmonic vascularization with 3 vessel types: In the first studies it was emphasized as signals were more numerous and stronger in breast tumors [1,2].
Color Doppler flow image shows high vascularity in the mass B, C. Clinical, ultrasonographic and mammographic 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 ecofrafia, the response to therapy, the prognosis and the probability to metastatize.
Complicated cysts need to be distinguished from quite anechoic malignant lesions such as medullary carcinomas, metastases to the breast or intra-mammary metastatic lymph-nodes: The typical presentation is in a woman of reproductive age with a mobile palpable breast lump.
Color Doppler imaging pre- A and post-chemotherapy B shows decreased vascularity of the tumor as positive response to chemotherapy. Their peak incidence is between 25 and 40 years. Phyllodes tumor in B-mode ultrasound is appreciated as a solid, omogeneous lesion [6,7] Fig. Due to their hormonal sensitivity, the fibroadenoma commonly enlarges during pregnancy and involute at menopause. There is significant local variation in this regard.
Giant fibroadenomas of the breast Juvenile or giant fibroadenoma is a rare pathology usually presenting in adolescent and young girls 10—18 years old that is characterized by massive and rapid enlargement of an encapsulated mass . Inflammatory disease Ultrasonography using Color Doppler can depict vascularization in thick-walled cysts, allowing the distinction between old fibrotic cysts with low level internal echoes and abscesses or infected galactoceles, where wall hyperemia is associated with fluid-debris pus levels.
Non-surgical care for locally advanced breast cancer: US image shows a hypoechoic lesion, with irregularly shaped A ; color Doppler shows vessels with irregular course, sinusoids, and arteriovenous shunts B, C.

Here below are presented examples where Color Doppler is valuable. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.
Il color Doppler ha molte altre applicazioni fibroademoma valutazione delle patologie della mammella femminile e maschile, che vengono esaminati nel presente articolo. Interval enlargement is an indication for biopsy. A fibroadenoma is a type of adenomatous breast lesion. Fibroadenomas characteristically contain both stromal and epithelial cells.
Predicting clinical behaviour of breast phyllodes tumours: They usually occur in women between the ages of 10 and 40 years.
Associated Data Supplementary Materials mmc1. 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]. Gray-scale sonography shows a non-compressible, tortuous or beaded hypoechoic structure with hyperechoic layers in the subcutaneous fat, without a demonstrable flow signal at Color Doppler.

Color Doppler ultrasound may be valuable also in assessing the efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and in particular of antiangiogenesis treatments. 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.
Malignant tumors had a tendency to show increased vascularization Fig. Support Center Support Center. Introduction Clinical, ultrasonographic and mammographic 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.

Published online Mar Juvenile or giant fibroadenoma is a rare pathology usually presenting in adolescent and young girls 10—18 years old that is characterized by massive and rapid enlargement of an encapsulated mass . B-mode, color and power Doppler ultrasonography of the male breast.
A schematic review of color Doppler diagnostic criteria, indicating a benign or malignant lesion, are described. Journal List J Ultrasound v. Color Doppler ultrasonography of the breast. A maximum diameter of 2. Fibroadenomas that have high stromal cellularity or containing adenosis complex fibroadenomas often show internal vascularization at Color Doppler, differently from the fibrosclerotic or hyalinized ones that may cibroadenoma small peripheral vessels but not internal flow.
An attempt was made in the past to evaluate the vascularization of mammary lesions, initially with angiography, and subsequently by using the Doppler. Abstract Has color Doppler a role in the evaluation of mammary lesions?
