The salad oil sign, also referred to as the droplet sign, is an MRI sign of breast implant rupture.
It is characterized by small rounded high T2 signal foci within a breast implant and represents water droplets or small amounts of gas within the silicone. It also can be characterized as hypointense foci on the water-suppressed sequences.
