German term or phrase:Kernschatten
This is a type of shadow shown in mammographies indicating possible cancer. I have this direct quote from German medical report:
"Keine Kernschatten, keine suspecten Kalzifikationen."
Is there an English equivalent for this term? I have done google searching in English but have not yet found any exact equivalent.
Explanation: The nonhomogeneity of the core shadow is a fairly reliable indicator of invasive ductal carcinoma. A completely homogeneous carcinoma signifies complete intratumoral desmoplasia or necrosis. http://shortify.com/11649
