Breast MRI​

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an imaging technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body.

A breast MRI is a painless, low-risk exam that can be used to:

  • evaluate an abnormality or lump
  • plan treatments and your body’s response to them
  • assess silicone implant integrity
  • screen for cancer

Physicians typically use MRI in addition to other imaging techniques, including mammography and ultrasound, to allow for a clearer image of the breast. Your physician will discuss with you if additional imaging is needed.
