Magnetic Resonance Imaging at the Magee-Womens Breast Cancer Program

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a computer, a magnetic field, and radio waves to produce images of the soft tissues in the body.

Imaging experts at the Magee-Womens Breast Cancer Program use MRI in conjunction with traditional mammography to provide high-quality breast images that may lead to the early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

We use MRI, sometimes called magnetic resonance mammography (MRM), when imaging the breasts for:

  • Diagnosing breast implant rupture
  • Surgical planning¬†
  • Breast cancer staging and treatment planning
  • Post-surgery and post-radiation follow up
  • Monitoring high-risk patients with a known or suspected genetic mutation that may cause breast cancer
