Radiology Question for the Week of July 3, 2023

While the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) originally recommended a delay of four to six weeks after vaccination due to a higher incidence of axillary adenopathy, that directive was rescinded as of February 2022. Refer to Feb2022.pdf for more information.
