Benefits and Risks - Breast MR Scan

Benefits

  • No radiation is used during a breast MR scan so there is no risk of radiation exposure.
  • A breast MR scan can detect early signs of breast cancer before other breast imaging procedures.
  • A breast MR scan can detect small abnormalities not seen by other breast imaging procedures.
  • A breast MR scan can catch if breast cancer is spreading.

Risks

  • Breast MR scans are not recommended for patients who are pregnant or may be pregnant.
  • Breast MR scans are not recommended for patients with epilepsy.
  • There may be other risks depending on your medical condition. Consult with your SMIL radiologist before your breast MR scan.
  • The strong magnetic fields created during an MRI can make heart pacemakers and other implants not work as well. It can also cause a piece of metal inside your body to move or shift.

I never have anything but good things to say about SMIL. I have had multiple imaging tests done with them in the last three years, a few at this location and a few at another. Everyone is always nice, professional, and helpful. The atmosphere also feels far less clinical than other imaging facilities, which I appreciate. I always choose them when my doctors ask where I'd like my order sent.
