    Abstract

    © 2016 The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists. Breast calcifications are among the most common abnormal radiographic findings detected at screening mammography. This essay illustrates the clinico-pathological features of nine screen-detected breast carcinomas, which had benign-appearing macrocalcifications, as a radiographically dominant presenting feature. We aimed to demonstrate that benign-appearing calcifications within a breast lesion are not diagnostic of a benign process if the other imaging characteristics of the lesion are suspicious of malignancy.
