Apparently this most often affects the nodes in the armpit, so it can cause concerning spots on mammograms. But according to this article, the swollen nodes can also show up on CT scans of the chest.

None of this is dangerous, but it is recommended that you advise your radiologist that you've recently had a COVID vaccine.
