Breast MRI

Breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is an advanced imaging technique used as a problem-solving tool and supplemental screening for high-risk women. The MRI screening is often recommended for women, in conjunction with a traditional mammography, who are carriers of the breast cancer gene (also known as BRCA). All breast MRIs performed at Lifespan are interpreted by specialized breast imaging radiologists.
