ABSTRACT: Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) has different prognostic factors according to the detection modality. The purpose of this study was to compare parameters from a radiomic analysis of ultrasonography (US) images for DCIS detected on screening mammography (MMG) and US and detected on screening US only. A total of 154 surgically confirmed DCIS visible on US were included. Regions of interest were drawn onto US images of DCIS, and texture analysis was performed. Lesions were classified into those detected by both US and MMG (the US-MMG group) and those detected by US only (the US group). Analysis parameters were compared between the US-MMG group and the US group. Ninety-six lesions were included in the US-MMG group and 58 lesions in the US group. Energy, entropy, maximum, mean absolute deviation, range, SD, and variance were significantly higher in the US-MMG group than the US group. Kurtosis, skewness, and uniformity were significantly lower in the US-MMG group than the US group. Among the 22 gray-level cooccurrence matrix parameters, 18, 21, 22, 20, and 21 parameters were significantly different between the 2 groups in 0, 45, 90, and 135 degrees and the average value. Among the 11 gray-level run-length matrix parameters, 6, 6, 7, 7, and 6 parameters were significantly different in 0, 45, 90, and 135 degrees and the average value. Inverse variance and gray-level nonuniformity were the most different features between the 2 groups. Screening-detected DCIS showed different radiomic features according to the detection modality.
