Abstract:
Breast cancer is the leading oncological pathology in women. According to WHO figures more than 1 million women fall ill with breast cancer in the world, and the growth of this pathology cases is forecasted in coming years. The work is based on the data of 260 patients referred for US investigation from the city's polyclinics to clarify the mammary pathology nature. The women age varied from 20 to 56 years. US was performed on the Aloka 500 apparatus using a multifrequency linear transducer operating in 6-15 MHz band. Ultrasound study was performed according to a standard procedure with the conduct of a gray-scale investigation, colour and energy mapping. 174 of 260 women (66.9%) had the different mastopathy variants, 49 ofthem (18.8%) had the mostfrequent diffuse fibrous mastopathy and 37 (14.2%) − fibrocysticbreast disease, lesscommon cases (11) of nodalmastopathy (4.23%). The complex US revealed 39 benign focal formations in 39 of 260 studied women, 21 of them had the cysts (8.06%), 10 − fibroadenomas (3.84%), and 8 women (3.07%) had lipomas. Breast cancer was detected in 4 women (1.54%). Taking into account the above mentioned provisions, one can be convinced of the need for US examination of mammary glands and women training in self-examination methods. Aim:examination of mammary glands in women. Materials and methods: the work is based on the data of 260 patients referred for US investigation from the city's polyclinics to clarify the mammary pathology nature. The women age varied from 20 to 56 years. US was performed on the Aloka 500 apparatus using a multifrequency linear transducer operating in 6-15 MHz band. Ultrasound study was performed according to a standard procedure with the conduct of a gray-scale investigation, colour and energy mapping. Results: Thus, a complex US investigation as an additional highly-informative diagnostic technique, is characterized by high informativeness in the breast cancer diagnosis. Method has the high sensitivity, and this fearure will render assistance in diagnosis, systematization the tactics of dynamic examination and women management with various mammary gland diseases. Taking into account the above mentioned provisions, one can be convinced of the need for US examination of mammary glands and women training in self-examination methods.
