Breast MRI Procedure
About Breast MRI
Bayshore Medical Center offers peace of mind for women who are at high risk for breast cancer, particularly those with a strong family history of breast cancer or a genetic predisposition to breast cancer. Our breast MRI features the DynaCad system, which provides computer-assisted diagnostic capability, enabling the radiologist to provide the most accurate interpretation possible.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women who are at high risk, particularly those with a strong family history of breast cancer or a genetic predisposition to the disease, have a breast MRI in conjunction with their annual mammography screening. By combining these modalities, we have an improved chance of detecting breast cancer at an early stage, offering women an increased chance of survival.
Breast MRI uses magnetic resonance imaging to distinguish between benign and malignant lesions. Although Breast MRI can detect tumors in dense breast tissue, it cannot detect breast cancer at its earliest stage (microcalcifications or tiny specks of calcium). Many of the cancers are detected at this stage by mammograms, which is why annual mammography is a patient’s best first line of defense.
Access to the Full Continuum of Care
If further treatment is required following your diagnostic exams, Bayshore Medical Center provides access to advanced treatment options, cancer specialists, and clinical trials through Hackensack Meridian Health Cancer Care. An entire team – including surgeons, radiation oncologists, nurses, and social workers – will work together to determine the best treatment and recovery plans.
