Breast MRI studies are now available using the 3T MRI. It is not intended to replace mammography/ breast ultra-sound, but is used as a supplemental tool - to aid the diagnosis of breast conditions, assess the integrity of breast implants, guide breast biopsy procedures and/or monitor response to therapy.
Passage of CA SB 1538 requires that women with dense breast tissue be notified following a mammogram. Physician reports now classify breast tissue using a 4-level density scale. Women are informed:
1) Dense breasts can make it harder to evaluate the results of a mammogram
2) Dense tissue is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer
3) A range of breast screening options are available
