Women's acceptance of MRI in breast cancer surveillance because of a familial or genetic predisposition



Women's acceptance of MRI in breast cancer surveillance because of a familial or genetic predisposition



Breast 15(5): 673-676



Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breasts is a promising screening modality for early detection in women at increased breast cancer risk. We investigated the subjective experiences with MRI and the preferences for MRI, mammography or clinical breast examination in 178 high-risk women adhering to a breast cancer surveillance programme. MRI was reported to cause limited discomfort. About 44% preferred MRI as a screening test (mammography: 14%). MRI provided the most reassurance of breast cancer being absent in case of a favourable test result. MRI seems to be acceptable as a screening test for women at increased breast cancer risk and is preferred by them over mammography.
