The approach outlined above for describing and reporting sonographic features of breast masses represents only the initial step in the development of a comprehensive system to enhance the accurate identification, reporting, and analysis of sonographic abnormalities of the breast. Future revisions, with validation of interobserver consistency in application of these descriptors across multiple centers, with feedback from potential users in the breast imaging community, will undoubtedly expand the utility of this effort.
