Breast MRI and Fast Breast MRI in Framingham, MA
Breast MRI is a type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A breast MRI is a powerful diagnostic tool that can detect very small cancers that mammograms or ultrasounds may overlook.
FAST Breast MRI is an innovative, radiation-free screening for breast cancer. While full conventional breast MRI is used to screen women at a high risk for developing breast cancer, FAST MRI is tailored for women with dense breast tissue who do not meet the lifetime breast cancer risk assessment level for a full MRI study. If you have been deemed lower risk but desire a deeper look into your breast health, supplemental screening may benefit you.
During a Breast MRI, you lie on a cushioned table that moves into the scanner. Halfway through your scan, an injected contrast agent will be used to add contrast to your images for comparison. These contrast agents rarely cause allergic reactions
