BREAST IMAGING » Breast Mri

Breast MRI

High-resolution breast magnetic resonance imaging (breast MRI) is a powerful modality that may be used along with mammography for high-risk patients, such as those with breast cancer or a known breast cancer genetic mutation, or to provide radiologists with more information. Sometimes cancer can be obscured by dense breast tissue on a mammogram, but it may appear more obvious on an MRI. Additionally, breast MRI is considered to be the "gold standard" for evaluation of breast implant rupture.
