Abbreviated Breast MRI

MRI is now well established as the most sensitive imaging test available for the detection of breast cancer. Abbreviated Breast MRI is a short MRI scan used for screening of women at average risk of breast cancer. Abbreviated Breast MRI takes less than 10 minutes to perform and has been shown to be equally effective as traditional full breast MRI for the detection of breast cancer, with no radiation and no breast compression required. It can be used for women with any breast density and is especially useful for women who have dense breast tissue that may limit visibility of cancer on a mammogram.
