Abstract

CRIADO, Divanei Aparecida Bottaro; BRAOJOS, Fernanda Del Campo; TORRES, Ulysses dos Santos  and  MUNIZ, Marcos Pontes. Aesthetic breast augmentation with hyaluronic acid: imaging findings and implications for radiological assessment. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.3, pp. 181-183. ISSN 0100-3984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000300014.

New injectable fillers such as hyaluronic acid have recently been employed as a non-surgical alternative to implants such as silicone for aesthetic breast enhancement. Although their utilization is not yet widespread in Brazil, radiologists should be aware of the imaging findings in this context and of the implications of the presence of this filler for the radiological evaluation in the screening for breast cancer.
