Women have breast augmentation for multiple reasons. Some feel their breasts are small or their breasts have lost volume or firmness as result of gravity or childbearing. She may decide after reaching full maturity development that breast augmentation will improve her self-image. The presence of implants makes imaging the breasts more challenging. Proper mammographic positioning of the augmented breast is vital to image quality. The degree implants obscure breast tissue depends on their position, density, and level of encapsulation. In this lesson you will learn techniques for optimal imaging of the augmented breast and the complications associated with imaging the augmented breast. Compression “do's and don’ts” and achieving the best visualization of the breast tissue for augmented patients will be the highlight of this presentation. You will gain valuable knowledge about imaging the reconstructed breast along with imaging tips and tricks. You will enjoy this lesson and gain valuable knowledge.
