This examination is considered nowadays as the best tool to diagnose mammary pathologiesas it provides detailed images of breasts. It also provides very clear images of parts of the breasts that are difficult to see clearly in an ultrasound or a mammogram. With this examination, we obtain close to 2.000 pictures and we can, therefore, reproduce both breasts which can be very graphic and useful for surgeons, gynaecologists and oncologists. -
- To evaluate an abnormal result in a mammogram or breast ultrasound.- To evaluate the possible rupture of breast implants.
- To evaluate a breast tumour.
- To check if there are more cancer cells in the same breast or in the other breast after breast cancer has been diagnosed.
- To make the distinction between scar tissue and tumours in the breast.
- To find cancer cells that could remain after surgery or chemotherapy.
- To show the blood flow through the breast.
- Have a high risk of cancer (with a strong family history or genetic markers of breast cancer).
- Have dense mammary tissue.
- Magnetic resonance imaging does not involve any kind of radiation. - The most common type of tint used is gadolinium, which is very safe. Allergic reaction to this substance is very rare.
