Breast MRI

breast MRIOur highly trained breast health specialists perform breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for patients on the most advanced equipment in the comfortable setting of BIDMC's BreastCare Center.

We use breast MRI as a screening tool in high risk patients, 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.
