In this example of a benign papillary lesion the solid component (red arrow) appears as a stiff defect in the bull’s-eye pattern. 5 Limitations Accuracy can diﬀer between shallow sites and deep sites due to problems associated with variable displacement at diﬀerent depths. Further improvement of applications and adjustments to imaging methods are needed to overcome these problems.
The measurements should be taken at the same depth in the image as the degree of compression varies with depth. These factors were not controlled in the studies and may account for the variability of the results. When using this technique the appropriate cutoﬀ should be determined in your lab with your technique and equipment. ) In addition to using the interpretation methods previously discussed to determine if a lesion is benign or malignant, the information as to whether the lesion is soft or hard or visible on EI is helpful in some clinical situations.

The second “lesion” may have been two adjacent lesions, one benign and one malignant, confounding the measurements.
