A pictorial guide to artifacts on contrast mammography: How to avoid pitfalls and improve interpretation.
Contrast-enhanced mammography (CEM) is an increasingly accepted emerging imaging modality that demonstrates a similar sensitivity to MRI but has the advantage of being less time consuming and inexpensive. The use of CEM continues to expand as it is recognized and utilized as a valuable tool for diagnostic and potentially screening examinations. As with any radiologic examination, artifacts occur and knowledge of these is important for adequate image interpretation. The purpose of this paper is to provide a pictorial review the common artifacts encountered on CEM examinations and identify causes and potential resolutions.
