Breast MRI

Breast MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a very specialised non-invasive scan that uses magnetic fields to determine what the inside of the breast looks like. The scan does not involve radiation but requires a patient to lie flat on their stomach for up to one hour in the scanner. Although the scan is very sensitive at detecting breast cancer it can also give rise to a number of uncertain findings that may require additional investigation. As a result MRI is currently only recommended for breast screening in women with a very strong family history of breast cancer or as an additional investigation in women with clinical or mammographic abnormalities.

Women with a strong family history of breast cancer are eligible for MRI screening on the advice of one of our Clinical Directors.

For more information, please view our breast MRI FAQ page.
