There has long been a concern among women with breast implants that the implants themselves would create problems with obtaining accurate mammogram results. This study provides reassurance that there is no concern along those lines.

Along a similar vein, women with implants actually have a much lower rate of breast cancer as compared to peer groups in the population.
