What should I expect?
Breast MRI is a series of images that are performed while you are lying face down with your breasts hanging down in an opening of the table so they can be scanned without being compressed. Breast MRI patients require an injection of contrast agent that enhances the breast tissue and helps to identify abnormal areas. MRI contrast agents are generally considered safe, and an allergic reaction is extremely rare. The findings of your MRI will be sent to your ordering physician after being reviewed by the radiologist.
