Hi @danielle0313, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You'll notice that I moved your 2 messages to this existing discussion about BI-RADS 3.

I did this so that you can easily connect with fellow members @katrina123 @trixie1313 @annac3 and @icya2282 who are talking about Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System or BI-RADS assessment categorization. This system sorts mammogram results into categories numbered 0 through 6. With these categories, doctors can describe what they find on a mammogram using the same words and terms. This makes communicating about the test results and following up after the tests easier.

I found this definition of acoustic enhancement
"Acoustic enhancement also called posterior enhancement or enhanced through transmission, refers to the increased echoes deep to structures that transmit sound exceptionally well." Read more https://radiopaedia.org/articles/acoustic-enhancement

Danielle, when is your follow-up appointment to discuss with your doctor?

Thanks Colleen! I’m a newbie here learning to navigate.
My primary care ordered the tests so I don’t have a follow up. All I have is my 6 month u/s.
