MRI of the breast is used as a supplemental tool to mammography and ultrasound. This specific MRI allows our radiologists to further evaluate any hard to see abnormalities visualized on a mammogram, evaluate breast implants or ruptures, determine the extent of disease after a diagnosis of breast cancer, and screen women who are at an increased risk for breast cancer. A breast MRI is painless and requires complete stillness for the duration of the approximately 25-minute procedure. Contrast (dye) is required, given through an IV for this procedure.
