Breast MRI

RMN Mamar uses powerful magnets and radio waves to produce detailed images of the breast tissue. It can detect breast cancer that may be missed by other tests such as a mammogram or ultrasound. In addition, it can help to find out the size of a breast cancer, and whether it has spread (metastasized). It is most often used in combination with mammography or ultrasound.

You will be asked to wear a hospital gown and to remove any clothing with metal snaps or zippers before the procedure begins. Your care team will help you to lie on a narrow table that slides into a large tunnel-like tube. The MRI machine makes loud noises, and the care team will give you earplugs or headphones to help you block out the noise. You will need to remain very still for the entire scan, which usually lasts 30 minutes, but could take longer.

Clarity in Imaging: Understanding the Significance of Breast MRI in Healthcare

A radiologist will then examine the results of your exam. They will tell you what the findings mean and what further testing or treatment they recommend.

Although MRI is very accurate, it is not perfect. Sometimes changes in the tissue look like cancer on MRI, but later turn out to be non-cancerous. For this reason, a biopsy is often recommended if a change is found on an MRI. In addition, MRI is often helpful in assessing scarring and recurrent cancer following lumpectomy, as these can be hard to distinguish from the original tumor on other imaging tests.
