If you have a physician referral for a "fast" breast MRI to investigate inconclusive or suspicious results from a screening mammogram, please call us to schedule.
A fast breast MRI is designed particularly for individuals with dense breast tissue who are undergoing breast cancer screening. Dense breast tissue can complicate the detection of abnormalities using just mammography.
A fast breast MRI uses special techniques to make the imaging process quicker and more efficient. Typically taking around 10-15 minutes, it's significantly faster than a standard MRI. During the scan, a contrast agent is used to help us see certain parts better.
A fast breast MRI a non-invasive procedure, which means you won't be exposed to any harmful radiation. It's also valuable for identifying breast cancer at an early stage in high-risk patients and has the capability to uncover small tumors that might not be noticeable through mammography alone.
