Breast MRI

A Supplemental Tool for Diagnostics

At Derry Imaging, we offer cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology for high-resolution breast MRI.

Breast MRI is not a replacement for mammography or ultrasound imaging—it is a supplemental tool for enhanced diagnostics. Breast MRI provides a different view than mammography and is suitable for certain people and in certain situations, such as:

  • Those with dense breast tissue.
  • Those with high risk for breast cancer.
  • Those with newly diagnosed breast cancers to see whether the cancer has spread.
  • To plan surgery more accurately.
  • To judge the effectiveness of chemotherapy.

The best quality, without compromise.

Should You Have a Breast MRI?

The American Cancer Society recommends that women at high risk for developing breast cancer get screened annually with a breast MRI in addition to a mammogram.

According to ACS guidelines, women at high risk include those who:

  • Have a known BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation.
  • Have a first-degree relative with a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation and have not had genetic testing themselves.
  • Have a lifetime risk of breast cancer of 20–25% or greater
  • Had radiation therapy to the chest when they were between 10 and 30 years old.
  • Have Li-Fraumeni syndrome, Cowden syndrome or hereditary diffuse gastric cancer syndrome, or have a first-degree relative with any one of those syndromes.
