Objective: The present study analyzed the normal types of breast morphology, and breast echo structure using ultrasound evaluation while examining the difference in breast morphotypes among Malaysian females according to age groups and ethnicity.
Methods: between October 2013 and December 2014, a survey was prospectively conducted on women attended the imaging department of Golden Horses Health Sanctuary, Sri-Kembangan located in Klang Valley, Selangor, Malaysia for general checking using Philips ultrasound iu22. Both breasts were scanned utilizing clockwise, overlapping radial approach with linear array probe L17-5 (5-17 MHz), depth 3.5-4.0 cm and gain 86-87% for each woman.
Results: 615 women were examined within age groups from 20-70 years old and different ethnic group (Malay, Chinese and Indian). Findings of ultrasound images revealed that Indians owned the highest mean score of breast tissues in premenopausal age group compared with others, the mean of glandular tissue (length × width) for Indian respondents was 22.51 nm ± 8.79 mm for right upper outer. The mean of fat lobules (length × width) of right lower outer for Indian and Malay respondents at pre-menopausal were 26.57 mm ± 12.05 mm and 27.10 mm ± 11.51 mm respectively, while in Chinese respondents were 15.84 mm ± 9.51 mm. Approximately the left breast has the same values as right breast in each breast tissue.
Conclusion: This study observed that the prevalence and wide range size of ultrasound breast tissue between premenopausal and postmenopausal women were varying among the three ethnic groups. Also revealed that; ultrasound can be a good first row image modality in breast imaging.
