Recalled from ABUS screening for possible mass versus artifactual shadowing in the right breast at 10:00 7.5 cm from the nipple

TECHNIQUE
US Breast Limited Right

COMPARISON
Compared to: 06/02/2021 US Breast ABUS Complete Bilateral and 11/28/2020 MAM Bilateral Screening Digital Mammogram With Tomo

FINDINGS
Targeted color Doppler ultrasound performed throughout the region of questioned ABUS abnormality centered at 10:00 7.5 cm from the nipple shows only normal-appearing fibroglandular tissue.  The prior ABUS finding likely reflected artifact related to a dense patch of breast tissue.  No persistent suspicious sonographic abnormality.

Right
There is an asymmetry seen in the upper region of the right breast in the posterior depth on the MLO view.  There are no significant calcifications or other abnormalities.

Left
There is no evidence of suspicious masses, calcifications, or other abnormal findings in the left breast.

MANAGEMENT
Ultrasound is recommended for right

Why no mention of ABUS or U/S in December mammogram - only comparing to last year?
