To date, breast MRI screening studies have been performed in 134 women. These examination prompted breast biopsy in 11 women, 3 of which yielded malignancy. Results to date demonstrate the feasibility of using breast MRI to screen high risk women. In particular, adherence to strict architectural interpretation criteria has minimized false positive findings. Additional data are required before any statements of the potential efficacy of MRI can be made.
