MRI for silicone breast implant rupture!

After the 2010 recall of Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) silicone breast implants, many asymptomatic women underwent MRI. This study assesses the diagnostic accuracy and interobserver variability of MRI in the detection of implant rupture and extracapsular silicone leakage.

Key Points:
  • MRI has a high accuracy in diagnosing rupture in silicone breast implants.
  • MRI appears to be a consistent diagnostic test with excellent interobserver agreement.
  • A simple, uniform classification ...

The lower the better?

This study evaluates whether image quality and diagnostic accuracy for intracranial aneurysm detection can be maintained with low kVp and low contrast material volume cerebral CT angiography.

Key Points:
  • Cerebral CTA is feasible using 100/80 kVp and 30 ml contrast agent.
  • This approach obtains diagnostic image quality with 45–74 % radiation dose reduction.
  • Diagnostic accuracy for intracranial aneurysm detection seems not to be compromised.
