By Radiopaedia: in general, a substantial minority of non-mass enhancement proves to be malignant 3-5. Second-look breast ultrasound is prudent to look for a correlate that can be targeted for ultrasound-guided rather than MRI-guided breast biopsy.

Sorry, I copied and pasted from Radiopaedia but forgot to erase 3-5 (the reference articles) so you just ignore those numbers.
