50 year old female for screening mammogram. The patient has no breast related complaints. Patient reported last clinical breast exam was in 09/2016. History of breast biopsy with benign result. There is no history of the patient's mother, sister, or daughter developing breast cancer.

Full field digital mammography was performed. Craniocaudal and mediolateral oblique views of both breasts were obtained. At the patient's request 3-D imaging/Tomosynthesis was not performed at this time. Computer assisted detection was utilized.

Patient had a prior mammogram from outside facility. No prior mammogram available for comparison at this time.

The breasts are composed of heterogeneously dense fibroglandular tissue, which reducing the sensitivity of the study. A biopsy clip is seen in the posterior upper outer quadrant left breast. There are multiple nodular densities in both breasts, the largest one measuring 2.5 cm in the posterior central portion of the left breast. No suspicious cluster of microcalcifications is seen. There is no evidence of axillary lymphadenopathy.

Heterogeneously dense breasts. Multiple nodular densities in both breasts. No evidence of suspicious cluster of microcalcifications. Comparison with prior mammogram study to assess stability is recommended. If prior mammogram is not available, further evaluation with additional mammographic imaging will be recommended.

Addendum dated 09/30/2016.

Prior mammogram study dated 07/29/2015 from outside facility is available for comparison. There is a nodular density in the posterior central portion of the left breast, new or increased size compared to the prior study. Further evaluation with additional mammographic imaging and targeted ultrasound for the left breast is suggested. Additional multiple parenchymal nodularities in both breasts are stable.

Ok what it seems to be saying is there is some changes either new or larger areas in comparing this screening from your last mammogram and they will want to get more images.
