Abstract

The authors modified a standard breast compression plate to allow ultrasound (US) scanning to be performed in the longitudinal and transverse directions with the breast positioned craniocaudally or laterally in a mammographic unit. The technique allows quick mammographic-US correlation of lesions, characterization of lesions as cystic, solid, or indeterminate, and the ability (with coordinates marked on the plate) to proceed directly with aspiration of sonographically indeterminate lesions.
