Findings: Frontal and lateral views of the chest were obtained and demonstrate cardiac size, pulmonary vascularity and mediastinal structures to be normal. There has been interval development of multiple rounded, nodular densities scattered throughout both lungs, most consistent with the patients history of known metastatic breast cancer. A left sided central venous catheter is seen with its distal tip overlying the region of the superior vena cava. There has been interval right mastectomy with clips in the right axillary region and along the right chest wall. There is no pneumothorax or free air beneath the diaphragm. Osseous and soft tissue structures otherwise are unremarkable.
Diagnosis: Metastatic breast cancer.
