Discordant pathology result

What is a discordant pathology result?

When a percutaneous breast biopsy is performed, one of the radiologist’s roles is to ensure the histopathologic diagnosis is concordant, or makes sense in light of the imaging appearance. If the imaging appearance is highly suspicious and the histopathologic results are benign, this may suggest a discordance. If there is discordance, the radiologist may suggest excisional biopsy for further evaluation.
