MRI Screening for Breast Cancer
As part of our MBCC coverage we discuss MRI screening for breast cancer in patients who carry a BRCA mutation or have a first-degree relative who is a BRCA carrier.
MRI Improves Breast Cancer Screening in Older BRCA Carriers
Adding an MRI to a mammogram improved the sensitivity of breast cancer screening in women 50 years of age or older who are BRCA mutation carriers.
Adding MRI Beneficial for Screening High-Risk Breast Cancer
An annual screening for breast cancer using a combination of MRI and mammography could be an effective program for high-risk women, particularly those who are known BRCA mutation carriers.
