Fifty-six-year-old female. Mammogram CC and MLO views. Bilateral fatty breasts ACR A. Right LOQ rounded partially well-defined partially obscured dense lesion BIRADS 3. Tomosynthesis of the right breast CC and MLO views. 3D digital breast tomosynthesis showed irregular micro lobulated margin with related architectural distortion of the right LOQ dense mass lesion BIRADS 4. Tomosynthesis detected the fine micro-lobulations in the breast lesion which was defined as a rather well-defined one by mammography and so shifted the BIRADS from probably benign 3 to suspicious lesion 4 which was pathologically proved to be duct carcinoma
