ObjectiveThe aim of this study is to present a 6-year prospective evaluation of second-look ultrasound (US) using volume navigation (V Nav) for MRI-detected additional breast lesions.MethodsAfter IRB approvals in both institutions, 1930 consecutive prone MRI breast examinations in 1437 patients were prospectively evaluated. All patients with an MRI-detected additional lesion underwent second-look US, and if occult, contrast-enhanced MRI in supine position was performed for US and MRI co-registration. For patients with breast hypertrophy, MRI-guided biopsy was performed directly. Pathologic examination was the standard of reference. One-way ANOVA and chi-square tests were used.ResultsIn 490 MRI examinations (25.4%, 490/1930), at least one additional breast lesion was detected for a total of 722 only MRI-detected lesions. Second-look US identified 549 additional lesions (238mm); 362 (65.9%, 362/549) proved benign at pathology and 187 (34.1%, 187/549) malignant. Second-look US with V Nav identified 151 additional lesions (179mm, p=n.s.); 67 (44.4%, 67/151) proved benign at pathology and 84 (55.6%, 84/151) malignant. MRI-guided biopsy was performed on 22 additional breast lesions (228mm, p=n.s.); pathology revealed 20 (90.9%, 20/22) benign lesions and 2 (9.1%, 2/22) malignant ones.

For patients with breast hypertrophy, MRI-guided biopsy was performed directly. Pathologic examination was the standard of reference. One-way ANOVA and chi-square tests were used.ResultsIn 490 MRI examinations (25.4%, 490/1930), at least one additional breast lesion was detected for a total of 722 only MRI-detected lesions.
