During the Breast MRI Performed by Hill Medical

What will occur during the breast MRI exam?

  • An IV will be inserted into your arm causing little discomfort.
  • You lie on your stomach while your breasts are placed in a cushion for signals to be collected.
  • The technologist will gently move the table you are lying on into the center of the magnet (camera) area, and you will be instructed not to move to avoid blurring of images.
  • You will hear periodic thumping noises at different intensities.

If I have implants, what is a Silicone Breast Implant Evaluation?

This breast MRI evaluation is only concerned about the rupture of a silicone implant and does not assess the surrounding tissue for the existence of breast cancer. There is no injection required. Implant rupture has no relationship to breast cancer. The exam takes about 45 minutes.

If I have implants, what is a Breast Tissue Evaluation?

This evaluation reviews the breast tissue rather than the implant. This exam requires a contrast injection to provide information. The breast MRI's are performed at Jim & Eleanor Randall Breast Center's sister facility, Huntington-Hill Imaging Center, Inc. It takes about 45 minutes.
