      Computed tomography is not a usual primary imaging modality for examining breast abnormalities. Mammography and ultrasonography are the standard techniques with magnetic resonance imaging reserved for equivocal cases such as possible post-treatment recurrence.1 This patient underwent thoracic computed tomography (see fig 1) and was found to have multiple dense lesions in the right breast. Subsequent histological examinations of specimens from core biopsy and mastectomy confirmed multifocal lobular carcinoma.
