  • Milk of calcium in the breast: appearance on prone stereotactic imaging. breast journal Ross, B. A., Ikeda, D. M., Jackman, R. J., Nowels, K. W. 2001; 7 (1): 53-55

    Abstract:

    Microcalcifications discovered by mammography require careful analysis, occasionally leading to core biopsy to exclude associated breast cancer. We report unrecognized milk of calcium layering on small field of view prone digital stereotactic images. We illustrate important features on prone digital images attributed to milk of calcium which can exclude breast neoplasm, suggest this diagnosis, and prevent unnecessary biopsy.
