Lack of efficacy of xeromammography in preoperatively detecting lobular carcinoma in situ of the breast
The medical records of fourteen patients with LCIS were reviewed to correlate the clinical, xeromammographic, and pathologic findings. The patients' xeromammograms were negative for findings associated with LCIS in 81% of the breasts that yielded biopsies positive for LCIS. Xeromammography does not appear to have improved our ability to identify patients with LCIS.
