Thank you for the question.
Much will depend on exactly where the VP shunt has been placed, in relation to breast tissue. At this point, the best that you can do is to communicate the presence of the shunt tubing with your mammographer. More than likely, once the radiologists have a “baseline” image, they will be able to detect any new “abnormalities” in the future ( using comparisons between the previous and new images).
I hope this helps.
