Breast MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) at the Trinitas Diagnostic
Nothing can replace a traditional mammogram as an initial screening
tool for breast cancer.
But when a mammogram is "questionable" and requires further
evaluation, a Magnetic Resonance Imaging scan of the breast is
considered the "gold standard" option for confirming or eliminating
the presence of breast cancer. The MRI procedure uses magnets and
computers to create detailed pictures of the breast that can be
studied from many different angles.
Leading physicians consider the breast MRI an extremely valuable tool
in evaluating mammogram abnormalities and identifying early breast
cancer, especially in women who are considered high-risk.
High-risk women include those who have had breast cancer or have a
mother or sister who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
At Trinitas Diagnostic Imaging Center, our recently upgraded MRI
scanner has state-of-the-art software that allows both breasts to be
scanned at the same time during one, painless 20-minute procedure.
