      THE ROLE OF ULTRASONOGRAPHY AND MAMMOGRAPHY IN MONITORING PATIENTS WHO UNDERWENT CONSERVING SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER (Abstract).The ultra-sound monitoring of the breast subject to conservative surgery for breast cancer aims mainly at diagnosing recurrences early. This paper intends to review the aspects relating to ultrasonography and mammography applied to the breast having undergone conservative surgery, its specific changes after radiotherapy, and to point out the role, but also the limits of each imagistic method. In the period January 2010 - March 2012, a retrospective study was carried out, which consisted in the ultrasound and mammographic monitoring of 60 patients having undergone breast- conserving surgery for breast cancer. For patients with less than five years since surgery, the most frequent modifications were post operative fluid collection (18%) and suture granuloma (16%); recurrence occurred in 9% of the cases. For patients operated more than 5 years before, the most frequent modifications were post operative calcifications and suture granulomas (12.5%); local recurrence registered in 12.5% of the cases. The ultrasound scan and mammography are essential and vital in the monitoring protocol of patients who underwent breast conserving surgery for breast cancer and they are sufficient, in most cases, for diagnosing recurrence.
