Breast MRI

Breast MRI

Along with mammography, breast MRI can be an effective diagnostic tool. Breast MRI is often used for women who are at greater risk of developing breast cancer or who have dense breast tissue or implants — cases in which mammography is less effective at detecting abnormalities. This technique offers a more comfortable experience for women, and is used to:

  • Assess the extent of breast cancer
  • Determine the effectiveness of chemotherapy or radiation therapy during breast cancer treatment
  • Further evaluate abnormalities that were found during a mammogram or clinical exam
  • Provide additional detail for treatment planning
