Clinical magnetic resonance imaging of the breast: Current indications and future directions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast is emerging as an important tool in women's imaging. In the patient with breast implants, MRI provides an essential method for visualizing implants and their complications. In the patient with breast cancer, MRI is rapidly becoming a practical adjunct to mammography and ultrasonography. The imperfections of mammography have encouraged the growth and evolution of MRI indications.
