In 5 patients, silicone gel implants obscurred the image, while in 5 patients with saline-filled implants a good 3-dimensional examination of the breast was possible with xeromammography. If saline-filled implants routinely allow better cancer diagnostic surveillance than do silicone gel implants, this should be considered by the surgeon at the time he does an augmentation mammaplasty.
