  • Figure 1
    Ultrasound

    Ultrasound of the right breast revealed a solid mass with irregular margins and posterior acoustic shadowing, near the prosthesis.

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Connective tissue disorders;
