Abstract In patients with silicone breast implants, implant rupture can occur, which can be intracapsular or extracapsular. Following implant rupture, silicone can travel through the lymphatic system into regional and distant lymph nodes. The purpose of this pictorial essay is to present findings of silicone implant rupture with intramammary and systemic silicone deposition as seen on dual energy CT (DECT), US, mammogram, PET/CT and MRI. We include imaging findings of silicone deposition in the breast in cases of intracapsular and extracapsular rupture. We also present silicone deposition in mediastinal, axillary,...

Controls were propensity matched and randomized, and data were retrospectively reviewed. Results: Forty-eight cases and 302 controls were analyzed. Palpable lesions were detected at a smaller size in augmentation patients (1.6 cm versus 2.3 cm; p
