Knowledge of the variety of appearance of this normal variant is important so that unnecessary biopsies and additional workups are avoided. Notes Cleavage view 1. The sternalis muscle. 2. No. This is a normal variant. 3. This is more often seen as a unilateral structure than a bilateral one. However, with improved positioning, the sternalis muscle may be seen more often. 4. Approximately 8% of the time. 26 CASE 13 Patient 1 Patient 2 1. In the first image, there is a rounded mass seen adjacent to the chest wall in the lateral aspect of the left breast on CC.
The repeat image is on the right. Describe the findings. 2. Why are the calcifications not seen well on the first image? 3. Where is motion unsharpness most likely to occur, and on which images? 4. What are the causes of motion unsharpness? 21 A N S W E R S CASE 10 Motion on MLO—Calcifications type of motion unsharpness frequently occurs in the inferior aspect of the breast on the MLO view. In this case, inadequate compression is evident by the overlapping and sagging breast tissues in the inferior breast.
The appearance of the muscle may range from an irregularly rounded density to a flame-shaped density. Usually, the focal asymmetry is surrounded by fat, causing it to stand out on the CC views. Rarely, CT or MRI may be necessary to confirm that this is indeed normal musculature, but ultrasound may also be helpful to exclude a medial mass. With improved mammographic positioning, this variant may be seen more frequently. Occasionally, when it is seen unilaterally, the patient may be positioned for a cleavage view (or “valley view”) and symmetric bilateral sternalis muscles may be seen as shown above.
