The DeKalb Health Imaging Center offers magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast in our Women’s Imaging and Diagnostic Suite. This noninvasive test provides a better view of dense breast tissue by capturing multiple cross-sectional pictures of the breast; an MRI uses a magnetic field, radio-frequency pulses (not x-rays), and a computer to produce detailed images.
A breast MRI does not replace mammography – it is an additional diagnostic tool to help detect or stage breast cancer or other breast abnormalities. A physician referral is required.
The Imaging Center is located on the second floor in outpatient services. Patients should park in Purple Lot A, Enter Door 5.
