Abstract

Ultrasonography, the preferred imaging modality for breast diseases, has merits such as absence of radiation, high diagnostic accuracy, and convenience for follow-up, thus playing an important role in clinical diagnosis and management. The American College of Radiology (ACR) proposed Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS ) and has updated for several times. Gradually, the BI-RADS has been accepted and adopted by ultrasound physicians at all levels of hospitals in China, and it has played a certain role in improving the diagnostic level of breast ultrasound in China. In order to standardize breast ultrasound application and raise the status of ultrasound in clinical decision-making of breast diseases, based on the latest edition of ACR BI-RADS Atlas 2013, the committee has reached the "Expert Consensus on Clinical Frequently Asked Questions in Breast Ultrasonography"on a number of controversial Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in clinical practice (hereafter referred to as "Consensus"), and will be dedicated to updating the contents of the "Consensus", through further experience in clinical practice and the advent of new information from further studies. This consensus is only for reference purposes for medical personnel, and the processes outlined are not mandatory by law.
