Figure 2

Breast MR image acquired in a 45-years-old patient with a palpable mass in the left upper outer quadrant. The axial postcontrast subtracted image (9.9/4.2; flip angle, 10°) depicts a lesion with irregular margin of mass and heterogeneous enhancement (arrow). The time-signal intensity curve of this shows a type III (washout) curve. (A). Microphotography of the same tumor showing a peritumoral inflammation (arrows). 200×. (B). Breast MR image acquired in a 63-years-old patient with a palpable mass in the left upper outer quadrant. The axial postcontrast subtracted image (9.9/4.2; flip angle, 10°) depicts a lesion of irregular margin of mass (arrow). The time-signal intensity curve of this shows a type I curve. (C). Microphotography of the same tumor showing no a peritumoral inflammation. 100×. (D).
