The lower panels show a close-up of the left breast area containing the lesion. The case is one of the false-negative cases included in the dataset. Accordingly, the initial screening assessment was a BI-RADS 2, meaning visible findings were judged as benign. After 1 year, the patient presented for another screening examination.

Mammograms in a 51-year-old woman with invasive ductal carcinoma. The upper panels show the craniocaudal and the mediolateral oblique views. The lower panels show a close-up of the left breast area containing the lesion. The case is one of the false-negative cases included in the dataset. Accordingly, the initial screening assessment was a BI-RADS 2, meaning visible findings were judged as benign. After 1 year, the patient presented for another screening examination. This time, a focal asymmetry with associated distortion within the left breast was noticed; the patient was recalled and diagnosed with a 1.5-cm mass in the upper outer quadrant of the left breast on the craniocaudal view (circle).
