Imaging features of volume replacement using an acellular dermal matrix in oncoplastic breast conserving surgery: A case report

An acellular dermal matrix (ADM) is a type of allograft that can be made from human, bovine, or porcine dermis and is used to support or reconstruct soft tissue. During breast reconstructive surgeries, ADMs are widely used to partially cover breast implants following a mastectomy to correct for insufficient subcutaneous tissue. Recently, ADMs have been used as a filling material for volume replacement in oncoplastic breast conserving surgery. In this report, we present the case of a female, middle-aged patient who underwent breast conserving surgery with volume replacement using an ADM.
