MIRANDA, Christiana Maia Nobre Rocha de et al. Is multislice computed tomography an important tool for breast cancer staging and follow-up?. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.2, pp. 105-112. ISSN 0100-3984.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the leading cause of cancer death among the female population. Extramammary findings related to breast cancer play an important role in the prognosis and treatment of such entity and the correct diagnosis of such alterations is essential for increasing the chance of cure. Most of the times, such manifestations result from complications arising from treatment, and may be associated with lymph node involvement, locoregional recurrence or distant metastasis.
