Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2013 -- Dr. Brad Bengtson, founder of the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, announces the release of his new article addressing the use of MRI technology to image silicone breast implants. The article was written by Breast Augmentation Michigan expert Dr. Bradley Bengtson and Felmont F. Eaves III, MD.
The article is titled "High-Resolution Ultrasound in the Detection of Silicone Gel Breast Implant Shell Failure: Background, In Vitro Studies, and Early Clinical Results" and evaluates the use of high-resolution ultrasound (HRUS) instead of the traditional MRI to image silicone breast implants for failure. The Food and Drug Administration currently recommends the MRI to screen for implant failure, although there have been recent studies questioning its accuracy as the best monitoring method.
Dr. Bengtson and Dr. Eaves conclude that HRUS technology does provide excellent visualization of silicone gel implants. The full article is available for review at http://aes.sagepub.com/content/32/2/157.
