While it is well accepted that CT is not an optimal imaging study to evaluate the breasts, findings on chest CT may be the first indication of an occult malignancy. The nonspecific appearance of breast findings and the lack of consensus guidelines for managing incidental breast findings may dissuade radiologists from thoroughly evaluating the breasts on CT. We review commonly encountered breast findings on CT and present an algorithm for managing incidentally detected breast findings.
