MRI of the Breast


Breast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging can help physicians screen high-risk patients, evaluate the extent of a known breast cancer, and further evaluate areas of concern found on mammograms and ultrasounds or during physical examinations.

The American Cancer Society recommends breast magnetic resonance imaging screens for women at high risk for breast cancer.  A high risk for breast cancer is typically because of a strong family history. A strong family history is usually a mother or sister who has had breast cancer before age 50. It can also be aunts or cousins, including those on your father’s side. Relatives who have had ovarian cancer also increase your risk. Your radiologist or primary care doctor can look at your family history and determine if MRI screening may be appropriate for you.

Breast MRI may be performed to:

  • Check for more cancer in the same breast or the other breast after breast cancer has been diagnosed
  • Distinguish between scar tissue and tumors in the breast
  • Evaluate a breast lump (usually after biopsy)
  • Evaluate an abnormal result on a mammogram or breast ultrasound
  • Evaluate for possible rupture of breast implants
  • Find any cancer that remains after surgery or chemotherapy
  • Screen for cancer in women at high risk for breast cancer (such as those with a strong family history)
  • Screen for cancer in women with very dense breast tissue

An MRI of the breast can also show:

  • Blood flow through the breast area
  • Blood vessels in the breast area
  • Breast MRI is more sensitive than mammogram, especially when it is performed using contrast dye. However, breast MRI may not always be able to distinguish breast cancer from noncancerous breast growths. This can lead to a false positive result.
  • MRI also cannot pick up tiny pieces of calcium (microcalcifications), which mammogram can detect.
  • A biopsy is needed to confirm the results of a breast MRI.
