ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Breast Implant Normal Mammographic Findings: Single Lumen Saline

History: Screening mammogram for an asymptomatic patient

Findings: Mediolateral Oblique (MLO) and craniocaudal (CC) mammograms demonstrate subglandular (prepectoral) single lumen saline-containing breast implants: McGhan Style 468. The devices have a lightly textured surface (Biocell). Digital mammograms courtesy of Donna Plecha, MD and Ramya Pham, MD, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Cleveland.

Ddx: There are 14 types of breast implants that have been described (see references). Of these types, the most common are: 1. Single lumen saline 2. Single lumen silicone gel 3. Standard double lumen (saline outer; silicone inner) 4. Reverse double lumen (silicone outer; saline inner)

Dxhow: Characteristic mammographic appearance.

Exam: Negative

No MeSH data available.
