Thus, an intense carcinomma in the first two minutes after gadolinium injection, or a type 3 curve washout must raise suspicion of mixed type MMC or, an even rarer pure tumor with high cellularity Because of different patterns of mammogram and ultrasound, both should be performed in all cases of MCB and in some equivocal cases breast MRI is of great value. Mammography and ultrasonography allow a satisfactory evaluation of the lesion’s morphology, but magnetic resonance imaging, besides providing data on morphology, also provides clues about tissue composition and along with the enhancement pattern after administration of gadolinium-based contrast medium, contribute to a better characterization of the lesion and to improve diagnostic accuracy.
