Breast MRIBreast MRI, which produces highly detailed images of the breast tissue is frequently used to determine whether or not an area of concern is cancerous, thereby avoiding unnecessary biopsies. Breast MRI does not however take the place of traditional breast cancer screening methods. This exam is also used to check for leakage or rupture of breast implants.
Breast MRI is used to investigate breast concerns first detected via mammography, physical exam, or other imaging tests. It can successfully image problematic conditions like dense breasts and implants. MRI is also useful for staging breast cancer, helping to determine the most appropriate treatment, and for patient follow-up after breast cancer treatment.
