CC and MLO views were obtained using Eklund technique, and regular MLO views including the whole implants.
Since this technique allows better compression of the breast and posterior displacement of the implant, a greater amount of breast tissue could be visualized, and thus RMLO clearly demonstrates the two small lesions, while they remain somewhat obscured in the regular MLO views that include the whole implant.
Findings are consistent with oil cysts.
