Mammographic Breast Anatomy

Reflect pathological changes in the soft tissue of the breast and mammography, the primary imaging method. Basic radiographic breast adipose tissue, soft tissue and calcium forms.

Mammographic breast; cutaneous structures (skin, areola, the nipple), the subcutaneous fat layer and the glandular layer is monitored in three sections. Areola, the nipple, skin and breast parenchyma all soft tissue. Subcutaneous fat tissue, and support, creates fat density.

Veins, subcutaneous tissue, 2-4 mm wide and long fatty breast tissue can be seen better. Venous pattern is usually symmetrical in both breasts, each patient is different. Contain calcification and atherosclerotic arteries because they are curved with the middle-aged or elderly women can be monitored. Overkill extends lymphatic vessels can not be seen.

The nipple and areola, which is projected by the appropriate technique is gained from the overkill extends to the front is seen as a soft tissue density. Some women collapsed as the variational, or import retracted. Normally at the plant and the leading soft-tissue density is seen as the areola. Skin, soft tissue surrounding the breast density is seen as a thin line. Mammography and normal skin thickness from 0.7 to 2.7 mm. The medial and inferior parts of the thickest skin of the breast. Normal breast parenchyma surrounding the fatty tissue under the skin has. This should be a uniform density along their length. Of fat lobules, extending to the inner surface of the skin, breast parenchyma and fibrous septa which curved course (Cooper ligaments) are available. They are as mammography is the best in the subcutaneous fat tissue.
