Introductory chapters are dedicated to prognosis and canopy the fundamentals of appearing breast MRI assessments, developing a breast MR application, and figuring out medical symptoms. extra chapters talk about breast interventional tactics, together with the surgeonÆs use of MR and MR-guided needle interventions. A entire diagnostic atlas completes the amount and addresses the spectrum of scientific occasions, corresponding to quite a few carcinomas, detailed tumor forms, and benign histologies.

We have found protocols that are ﬁxed and streamlined increase throughput. All of our nonresearch examinations, regardless of the clinical indication, are performed with the same protocol. It is now rare that a radiologist needs to monitor an examination as we try to ensure all necessary information is obtained on every patient via close communication beforehand with the referring clinicians and the MRI technologists. We have found it helpful to review and protocol each case in advance. This way, we can be sure that the patient has had the appropriate work up to date and that all necessary information is available for the time of interpretation.

The nurse administers the contrast, explaining to the patient what she can expect to feel. Three postcontrast images are obtained. Also, it was and still is important to us to perform bilateral imaging as many disease processes of the breast, including cancer, are bilateral.
