Abstract: 

One hundred ten patients with different breast complaints underwent physical examination, mammography and open surgical biopsy in the Faghihi Hospital from 1373 to 1376.
Mammographic reports of 110 patients were reviewed and the following results classified obtained: mass 75 (68%,), calcification 11 (10%.) and architectural distortions 32 (29%).
Forty-one percent of spiculated masses were malignant with a sensitivity of 30%. specificity 83% and an accuracy of 46%. (P-value <0.0001). Microcalcifications were found in the malignant lesions with an accuracy of 32% (P-value =0.32). Overall accuracy of mammography was 74.5% with sensitivity 91% (P-value <0.04) and specificity 17% (P-value <-.0001). The results of this study show reasonable accuracy for mammography in detection of malignant breast lesions that is statistically significant.
