DE LA NUEZ COBAS, Eileen et al. Imaging and cytology characterization in breast neoplasia. Rev cubana med [online]. 2011, vol.50, n.2, pp.140-149. ISSN 0034-7523.

Breast cancer is a health problem in Cuba with a high yearly incidence. To characterize those women supposed carriers of breast neoplasia seen in the central breast consultation over 2005; we describe the present echography and mammography alterations identifying the relation among imaging and cytology studies. A cross-sectional and descriptive research was conducted in the "Dr. Salvador Allende" Clinical Surgical Hospital prescribing them ultrasound (US), mammography and fine needle aspiration biopsy in 60 women. Different variables were characterized. There was predominance in age-groups of 40-79 years. Fifteen had pathologic maternal backgrounds of breast cancer; six had personal pathologic backgrounds of breast disease and six had an early menarche among other entities. Factors like nulliparity and the first labor at 30 years old were not much significant. In both imaging studies the lesion is more frequent in the left breast CSE with irregular edges larger than 10 mm. Almost more than the third part showed, according mammography, potential malignant microcalcifications. These and others elements allowed us to classify more than a half of patients within the category of "highly suggestive of malignancy". The relation between both imaging studies including the cytology study, yielded significant results showed in conclusions also summarizing the characterization of the proposed variables and the results of diagnostic studies conducted.
