Fig. 2. Doppler imaging of breast ultrasonography in suspected nodule of local recurrence. (A) A 5 mm-sized hypoechoic nodule (yellow square) occurred near the axillary region, and showed increased blood flow on the doppler mode which indicating a proliferative lesion (confirmed as recurrent invasive cancer on histological examination). (B) A 2 cm-sized hypoechoic nodule (green squares) was identified around the postoperative scar. However, there is no evidence of increased blood flow in the doppler mode, suggesting a high possibility of non-proliferative lesions (fat necrosis was confirmed in biopsy).
