The 5th edition of the ACR BI-RADS Atlas 2013 (15) provides a systematic outline for MRI evaluation of breast implants with description of implant material and lumen type (saline, silicone, other materials, single-lumen versus multilumen), implant location (retroglandular versus retropectoral), abnormal implant contour (focal bulge), intracapsular silicone findings (radial folds, subcapsular lines, keyhole signs, linguini sign), extracapsular silicone (breast, lymph nodes), water droplets, and peri-implant fluid.
The lateral suture technique or extracapsular repair is the simplest procedure and the lowest cost for surgical stabilization.
