Figure 22: MRI of a woman with intracapsular rupture. Sagittal T2-weighted fat saturated image demonstrates a “teardrop sign” (arrow). When walls of collapsing implant shell abut each other and small quantity of silicone is identified between these layers, this MR appearance is termed “teardrop sign.” The coronal T2-weighted image demonstrates a “noose sign” (arrowhead) and a “teardrop sign” (arrow). This sign differs from teardrop sign in that the margins of the collapsing implant shell do not abut each other
