Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an advanced imaging technique used to detect and diagnose breast cancer and other breast abnormalities. It uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to scan body tissue, producing particularly clear pictures. This effectively allows physicians at Atlantic Health System Cancer Care see what the inside of the breast looks like and often eliminates the need for mammography or breast biopsy.

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 received breast implants or undergone chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

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.

Digital MRI breast cancer screening services may vary by location. Please confirm when booking an appointment.
