The latest in MRI breast imaging and biopsy technology is available at McLaren Central Michigan in Mt. Pleasant. Results from McLaren Central Michigan's MRI lead to more precise diagnoses, allowing doctors to make timelier and more accurate treatment decisions with their patients.
Benefits of MRI breast imaging and biopsies include:
- Higher-quality image, produced faster
- Completion of scans usually within 30 minutes
- Less invasive and relatively painless biopsies with the use of local anesthesia
- Detection of location and extent of disease with great precision including in dense or augmented breasts
McLaren Central Michigan's MRI breast imaging system assesses multiple tumor locations, and better identifies early breast cancer, especially in women with dense breast tissue. It can further evaluate abnormalities first detected by mammography or ultrasound and is valuable for screening patients at high risk for breast cancer.
Breast MR imaging does not replace digital mammography, which remains the first step in diagnosis for tumors and abnormalities. Doctors use MRIs for additional evaluation or in high-risk cases demanding more extensive monitoring. For more information on digital mammography services at McLaren Central Michigan, click here.
All breast imaging procedures are performed by certified breast MRI specialists, who take the time with each patient prior to the exam to thoroughly explain the procedure. McLaren Central Michigan's MRI system also offers more comfortable exams and accommodates a wider range of patients.
