Table 2 Agreement of lesion location

From: Agreement in breast lesion assessment and final BI-RADS classification between radial and meander-like breast ultrasound

  Radial US+ Meander-like US++ ICC Weighted kappa Agreement

  1. +Due to the wide transducer in r-US, the mammilla is visualized as the rotation point, and thus, allowed for measuring the distance between lesion and nipple.++ In m-US, the nipple-lesion distance was estimated
