Abstract

MR imaging is now routinely performed for breast cancer screening and staging. For suspicious MR imaging-detected lesions that are mammographically and sonographically occult, MR imaging-guided breast interventions, including biopsy, clip placement, and preoperative needle localization, have been developed to permit accurate tissue diagnosis and aid in surgical planning. These procedures are safe, accurate, and effective when performed according to key principles, including proper patient selection, use of appropriate technique, adequate preprocedure preparation and postprocedure patient care, and postprocedure imaging-pathology correlation. Imaging-pathology correlation after MR imaging-guided biopsy is essential to confirm accurate sampling and guide development of a comprehensive management plan.
