calcifications

[kals-if-ik-A-shuns] tiny calcium deposits in the body. For example, they may be seen in the breast, alone or in clusters, on a mammogram. Very small deposits may be called microcalcifications. They are a sign of changes within the breast that may need to be followed by more mammograms, or by a biopsy. See also biopsy, mammogram.
