management of the patients. Detailed guidelines have been developed to standardize the
preoperative diagnostic procedures and postoperative pathological work-up of the specimens
as well as regarding the obligatory content of the pathology report. On the other hand,
systematized data considering the radiological appearance of breast lesions are rarely
presented for pathologists and pathology residents, although proper radiological pathological correlation has the potential to considerably increase the pathologists´ diagnostic
