Breast MRI Screening

The Carol W. and Julius A. Rippel Breast Center at Morristown Medical Center and the Breast Center at Overlook Medical Center offer breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – an advanced imaging technique used to detect and diagnose breast cancer and other breast abnormalities. This non-invasive procedure lets physicians see what the inside of the breast looks like and often eliminates the need for mammography or breast biopsy. Breast MRI uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to scan body tissue, producing particularly clear pictures.

Breast MRI is not a routine screening procedure. Instead, it is used to detect cancer in high-risk patients with dense breasts and patients with a strong family or genetic history (BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes) of breast disease. Doctors may also order an MRI to clarify inconclusive findings from other test procedures. Breast MRI can also help determine the staging of breast cancer, search for primary breast cancer in patients with metastatic lymphadenopathy, evaluate patients who have undergone chemotherapy or radiation therapy, and evaluate breast implants.

Our breast MRI digital imaging workstations feature a variety of computer-aided detection tools to perform real-time image analysis and interventional planning, as well as a state-of-the-art breast biopsy and excision system.
