CA right breast; lumpectomy done; on follow up. What type of calcification is seen?
Suture material may become calcified, resulting in suture calcifications. Suture calcifications are usually seen at a known surgical site, and the calcifications may be linear or tubular. Knots may be demonstrated. Suture calcifications are likely due to delayed resorption of catgut sutures, which can provide a matrix on which calcium can precipitate
Focal architectural distortion with retraction of the overlying skin is seen in upper inner quadrant of right breast – consistent with post surgical changes. Adjacent to this multiple calcifications with central lucency noted. Surgical clips noted in upper inner quadrant of right breast. Multiple rounded and linear calcifications noted in upper inner quadrant of right breast. Vascular calcification noted in right breast.
