Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the Breast
What To Think About
- Abnormal findings on a breast MRI often are not cancer. If the MRI has an abnormal result, your doctor will do other testing to find out if the problem is serious. This may involve doing an ultrasound test or a Reference biopsy Opens New Window, or both.
- Sometimes your MRI test results may be different because you were tested at a different medical center or earlier test results are not available to compare to the new test findings.
- While MRI is a safe and valuable test for looking at your breast, it is much more costly than other methods, and it may not be available in your area.
