Breast MRI can be very helpful in the assessment of the breast for additional or occult invasive disease. In this particular case, breast MRI did not show any separate or unsuspected sites of disease, indicating that the calciﬁcations seen on mammography were the best imaging “map” of the extent of disease. Unfortunately, even that cannot be depended on to demonstrate the full disease extent, because the histologic sample from the posterior cluster noted that not all of the identiﬁed DCIS was associated with microcalciﬁcations.
Of these, 30 (71%) were malignant or premalignant; colonic adenomas (18) and colonic adenocarcinomas (3) were the most frequently encountered unexpected diagnoses. Other previously unsuspected carcinomas diagnosed as a result of unexpected PET ﬁndings in this series included two breast carcinomas, two laryngeal squamous cell carcinomas, one gallbladder carcinoma, one endometrial adenocarcinoma, one ovarian adenocarcinoma, one fallopian tube adenocarcinoma, and one papillary thyroid carcinoma. Nine benign diag- noses were also conﬁrmed to explain unexpected PET uptake encountered in this series, including three with clinical signiﬁcance (one case each of cholecystitis, knee pigmented villonodular synovitis, and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis).
Of these, 45 were followed up with correlative imaging, and *Case from: Kipper MS, Tartar M. Case 1: Focal breast activity due to an unsuspected breast cancer. In Clinical Atlas of PET.
