Abstract

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women. Although computed tomography is not typically used as a primary diagnostic modality for detection of a breast mass, it is playing an increasing role in the accurate staging of breast cancer as well as in determining patterns or recurrence. This article reviews the role of CT in the evaluation of breast cancer with specific emphasis on the varying patterns of disease recurrence. Specific emphasis is placed on complications and recurrences in the chest, axilla, the abdomen (including involvement of the major abdominal organs), as well as the musculoskeletal system. Specific case examples illustrating the various pathologic processes involving patients with breast cancer are presented.
