Breast MRI

An MRI of the breast is not a replacement for mammography or ultrasound imaging but rather a supplemental tool that has many important uses, including:
  • Evaluating breast implants
  • Screening in women at high risk for breast cancer
  • Determining the extent of cancer after a new diagnosis of breast cancer
  • Further evaluating hard-to-assess abnormalities seen on mammography
  • Evaluating lumpectomy sites in the years following breast cancer treatment
  • Following chemotherapy treatment in patients 
Patients lie face down with breasts positioned in cushioned openings. The openings are surrounded by a breast coil, which is a signal receiver that works with the MRI unit to create the images.
