Breast MRI

breast MRIBreast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used as an additional screening tool for patients at high risk for breast cancer, and also as a diagnostic tool to gather further information about a patient with a specific breast problem.

Breast MRIs cannot find tiny microcalcifications and sometimes cannot distinguish between cancerous and non-cancerous masses. Therefore, breast MRI should not be used as a replacement regular mammograms.

Your primary care provider or breast health specialist can help determine if a breast MRI is appropriate for you.

Please call 617-754-9500 for more information about breast MRI or to schedule an appointment.
