What is MR Mammogram?
Magnetic Resonance based Mammogram is an imaging procedure where radio waves and magnetic field are used to create detailed images of the breasts to detect and diagnose problems associated with it. It is used to directly and visually assess any disorders or identify breast tumors and help guide treatment for it.
Why is MR Mammogram done?
- To detect and diagnose any suspected breast tumors (abnormal growth) and to assess its associated risk.
- To detect any structural abnormalities of the breasts
- To guide the procedures like biopsy or FNAC to confirm breast cancer
Preparation for MR Mammogram
- Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
- You may have to remove your jewelry and any metal objects which might interfere with the image.
