Introduction
Chapter 1: Description of calcifications localized within the ducts
Anatomic background
Secretory disease-type, plasma-cell-mastitis type calcifications
Casting-type calcifications
Fragmented and dotted casting type calcifications
Fragmented casting type calcifications on the mammogram
Dotted casting type calcifications on the mammogram
Fragmentted casting-type calcifications
Mammographic display of widespread fragmented casting type calcifications in five separate cases
Macroscopic and subgross histologic correlation when fragmented casting type calcifications fill an entire lobe
Characteristic mammographic and histologic presentation of fragmented casting type calcifications on the mammogram
Example 1.1
Mammographic-histologic correlation when both fragmented and dotted casting type and dotted casting type calcifications are present
Example 1.2
Fragmented casting-type calcifications, differential diagnostic problems
Fragmented casting-type calcifications which bear a resemblance to benign secretory disease type calcifications
Example 1.3
Fragmented casting-type calcifications may be deceptive, particularly when presenting as a small cluster
Examples 1.4, 1.5
Dotted casting-type calcifications
Mammographic display of widespread dotted casting type calcifications in five separate cases
Mammographic-histologic correlation of dotted casting type calcifications on the mammogram
Examples 1.6-1.9
Mammographic-histologic correlation of dotted casting type calcifications caused by Grade 1 DCIS, a rare event
Examples 1.10, 1.11
Chapter 2: The evolution of casting-type calcifications
Introduction
No apparent abnormality on the previous mammogram
Example 2.1
Cluster of calcifications as the earliest sign
Examples 2.2-2.9
Subtle casting type calcifications as the earliest sign
Examples 2.10, 2.11
Chapter 3: The theory of neoductgenesis
Introduction
Comparison of benign and malignant intraductal calcifications
Proposal of the theory of neoductgenesis
Morphologic demonstration of neoductgenesis
A)	Unnaturally high concentration of duct-like structures
B)	Desmoplastic reaction and extensive lymphocytic infiltration
C)	Disorganized architecture
D)	Pathologic ducts, contorted and crowded closely together
Histologic demonstration of multiple newly formed ducts
Examples 3.1-3.3
E)	Tenascin overexpression
Examples 3.4, 3.5
Neoductgenesis with asymmetric density and very subtle, associated calcifications
Example 3.6
Neoductgenesis without associated calcifications
Examples 3.7, 3.8
Chapter 4: The deviant nature of the breast cancer subtype with castings
Introduction
The use of mammographic tumor features to study breast cancer
Relative frequency of breast cancer occurrence by mammographic tumor features
Long-term outcome by mammographic tumor features
Proportion of breast cancer death by mammographic tumor features
Demonstration of fatal cases with casting type calcifications
Examples 4.1-4.3
Poor correlation of outcome with mode of therapy
Demonstration of local recurrence following radiotherapy
Examples 4.4, 4.5
Axillary node status and mammographic tumor features
Histologic malignancy grade and mammographic tumor features
Outcome of 1-14 mm casting cases compared with advanced cancers
Chapter 5: Recognition of the unpredictable, often fatal nature of the breast cancer subtype presenting with casting type calcifications on the mammogram
Examples with fatal outcome
Examples 5.1-3
Frequent recurrence with casting type calcifications
Examples 5.4-5.7
Distant metastases with casting type calcifications
Example 5.8
Suggestion for use of the mammographic prognostic features in clinical practice
