Breast MRI

Breast MRI is a special type of MRI focused solely on the female breast. Breast MRI can visualize small abnormalities missed by mammography and may be useful in screening women at high risk for breast cancer, according to recent studies. Breast MRI is highly sensitive to small abnormalities and can image breast implants and ruptures as well as dense breasts.

We also use breast MRI to:

  • Evaluate inverted nipples for evidence of cancer
  • Evaluate the extent of breast cancer
  • Determine what type of surgery is indicated (lumpectomy or mastectomy)
  • Detect breast cancer recurrences and residual tumors after lumpectomy
  • Locate primary tumors in women whose cancer has spread to axillary (armpit) lymph nodes


How Should You Prepare for Breast MRI?

Avoid wearing lotions, powders, deodorant or creams. Remove all metal objects, including jewelry, watches, hairpins and belt buckles. We may ask you to remove some clothing for your exam and we will provide you a cloth gown for privacy.

What to Expect During Breast MRI

You will lie on your stomach with your breasts hanging freely through the opening in the table. You will be given an IV with contrast dye for the test. Typical scan time is usually 30 minutes or less. After the exam, you will be free to leave and return to your normal activities.
