Follow up for BI RADS category 3 lesions
What is a 6-month follow-up? How long is the follow-up performed for BI RADS category 3 lesions?
Six-month follow-up is performed for BI-RADS category 3 lesions (after an appropriate imaging workup). The follow-up is performed for a total of 2 to 3 years at 6-month intervals. For lesions that fit the “probably benign” criteria, less than 2% of the lesions should be malignant. That is, greater than 98% of the lesions should be benign.
