What is a Breast MRI and a Breast Ultrasound?

A breast MRI is a medical imaging screening that uses powerful magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the breasts’ internal structures. Breast MRIs can help evaluate abnormalities found in a mammogram or assess the extent of breast cancer after a diagnosis. They can also screen women who are at high risk for breast cancer.

 

A breast ultrasound is a medical imaging screening that uses sound waves to produce images of the breasts’ internal structures. Breast ultrasounds are generally used to diagnose breast lumps or other abnormalities found during a physical exam or mammogram.

 

If you have a history of breast cancer in your family, it is important to get a breast MRI or breast ultrasound done. These wellness screenings will aid in the early detection of breast diseases, such as cancer, by using medical imaging to look inside the breasts. Our team of experts at MH Imaging use noninvasive scanning devises to provide the earliest detection possible. Our scanners are technologically advanced and expose patients to less amounts of radiation than other scanners so you get your results safer, faster and with higher resolution.

 

Before getting a breast MRI or ultrasound screening, you should make sure your doctor is aware of your family history with breast cancer and any changes in your breasts. After the screening, a doctor will review the scans and look for any abnormalities.

 

One of the biggest reasons people don’t get a breast MRI or ultrasound test done is because it puts a strain on their wallet. MH Imaging keeps patients in mind and offers imaging and post-imaging services and treatments at a fraction of the cost at a hospital. The average contracted fees at our center are 50-75% less than the average cost of hospital fees, and we perform a “No Surprise Cost” insurance check and pre-authorization to determine your coverage, deductible and out-of-pocket expenses before your appointment, so you know exactly how much you’ll be paying ahead of time.
