Patient
female, 45 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    MRI study
     

    A hyperintense anterior peri-prosthetic collection (arrow) is depicted on T1WI. The silicone implant shows homogeneous isointense signal compared to muscle.

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;

    TI with fat saturation demonstrates a hyperintense anterior peri-prosthetic collection (arrow) suggestive of a haematoma.

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;

    This fluid collection shows heterogeneous signal on T2WI. The silicone implant is homogeneous with intermediate signal with no signs of intra or extra-capsular rupture.

     
    Area of Interest: Breast; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemorrhage;

    STIR with specific inversion time for silicone reveals no signs of intra or extra-capsular rupture of the breast implant. Silicone is bright and homogeneous in this specific sequence (asterisk).
