Caption: Faulty breast implant. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a bilateral axial section through the chest of a 50-year-old woman, showing her breast implants (light, upper left and right). Here, material has leaked from inside the right implant (left) and infiltrated the surrounding tissue. This image was taken as part of a 2012 assessment into the quality of breast implants supplied by the company PIP, which were found to contain non-medical grade silicon.
