Abbreviated Breast MRI
What is Abbreviated Breast MRI?
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Fairfax Radiology is proud to offer Abbreviated Breast MRI as one of the latest screening tools for breast cancer. Abbreviated Breast MRI is the most sensitive exam for breast cancer detection, making it most beneficial for women who have dense breast tissue. While requiring an IV for contrast, this exam has no radiation and no breast compression. It is faster and more affordable than the standard breast MRI without compromising sensitivity.
The Abbreviated Breast MRI scan is best suited for women with an average to intermediate risk of breast cancer, (<20%). For women that are more high risk for breast cancer (>20%), it is recommended that they are screened with the standard breast MRI.
