Click 68 year old female with nodular fasciitis in the axillary tail of the right breast. FINDINGS: Targeted ultrasound over the area of palpation in the axillary tail revealed a multiloculated complex cystic mass with heterogeneous internal echotexture measuring approximately 5.6 x 5.2 cm in size. TECHNIQUE: Linear 6-15 MHz transducer (frequency 15 MHz) performed on a GE Logiq E9 Ultrasound machine.

Click 68 year old female with nodular fasciitis in the axillary tail of the right breast. FINDINGS: Targeted ultrasound over the area of palpation in the axillary tail revealed extensive soft tissue edema surrounding the mass. TECHNIQUE: Linear 6-15 MHz transducer (frequency 15 MHz) performed on a GE Logiq E9 Ultrasound machine.

Click 68 year old female with nodular fasciitis in the axillary tail of the right breast imaged two weeks after initial clinical presentation. FINDINGS: Axial noncontrast CT scan through the neck demonstrates a nodular soft tissue density in the axillary tail of the right breast. The contralateral side demonstrates normal subcutaneous fat for comparison. The largest lesion measured over 5 x 1 cm, significantly decreased in size since her biopsy. TECHNIQUE: Axial CT with soft tissue reconstruction algorithm, 234 mAs, 120 kV, 3 mm slice thickness, noncontrast.

Click 68 year old female with nodular fasciitis in the axillary tail of the right breast imaged two weeks after initial clinical presentation. FINDINGS: Coronal reformatted noncontrast CT image demonstrates a soft tissue lesion in the right axillary tail abutting the right pectoralis major. Note the biopsy clip in the superolateral aspect of the lesion and the beam hardening artifact related to tooth fillings. TECHNIQUE: Coronal reformat obtained from 0.75 mm axial source images at 2 mm slice thickness using TeraRecon software.

Click 68 year old female with nodular fasciitis in the axillary tail of the right breast imaged two weeks after initial clinical presentation. FINDINGS: Sagittal reformatted noncontrast CT image demonstrating soft tissue lesion, partially obscured by beam hardening artifact related to tooth fillings. TECHNIQUE: Sagittal reformat obtained from 0.75 mm axial source images at 2 mm slice thickness using TeraRecon software.

Click 68 year old female with nodular fasciitis in the axillary tail of the right breast imaged 3 months after initial presentation. FINDINGS: Axial noncontrast CT scan through the chest demonstrates resolution of previously seen subcutaneous nodular soft tissue densities in the right axillary tail. Appearance is now similar to the contralateral subcutaneous fat. TECHNIQUE: Axial CT with soft tissue reconstruction algorithm, 273 mAs, 120 kV, 3 mm slice thickness, noncontrast.

Click 68 year old female with nodular fasciitis in the axillary tail of the right breast imaged 3 months after initial presentation. FINDINGS: Coronal reformatted CT image demonstrating resolution of previously seen soft tissue lesion. Note the small biopsy clip. TECHNIQUE: Coronal reformat obtained from 3 mm axial source images at 2 mm slice thickness using TeraRecon software.

Click 68 year old female with nodular fasciitis in the axillary tail of the right breast imaged 3 months after initial presentation. FINDINGS: Sagittal reformatted CT image demonstrates resolution of previously seen subcutanous mass in the right axillary tail. TECHNIQUE: Sagittal reformat obtained from 3 mm axial source images at 2 mm slice thickness using TeraRecon software.
