Breast MRI

A Breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a supplemental tool for detecting and staging breast cancer and other breast abnormalities. This procedure should not replace mammography or ultrasound imaging. A physician may order a Breast MRI for the following indications:bmriequip

  • To evaluate abnormalities detected by mammography                                
  • To identifiy early breast cancer
  • A screening tool for patient's who have breast implants or scar tissue
  • To evaluate the progress of chemotherapy
  • To differentiate scar tissue from recurrent tumors
  • To determine how much cancer has spread further in the breast
  • To determine the integrity of breast implants
