    Women With Breast Cancer History Should Consider MRI: Study

    HealthDay News | Kathleen Doheny

    Women who have had breast cancer should consider annual screening with breast MRI in addition to an annual mammogram, new research indicates. Currently, the American Cancer Society recommends annual breast MRI plus mammography for women at very high risk for breast cancer, such as those with a known genetic mutation known as BRCA or those with a very strong family history. But it takes no position on MRI imaging for women who have had breast cancer, saying there is not enough evidence to recommend one way or the other.
