Professor, what is the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for breast screening? Professor Liao Ning, Professor of breast milk powder MRI diagnostic study using dedicated breast coil. * suggestive of suspicious results of malignancy. - burr. Annular enhancement. Irregular edge. Fusion distribution (ductal carcinoma in situ). Linear distribution (invasive cancer) in addition to other applications? Liao Ning, a professor of MRI, can be used to detect invasive and non invasive carcinoma with negative results in both the molybdenum target and the clinical findings. * highly sensitive. Specificity difference. - lead to unnecessary biopsy. * if suspected, bone metastases are found to be more sensitive than bone scans. * clinical indication of breast MRI. * occult breast cancer: pathological evidence of axillary lymph node involvement, but no abnormalities in mammography or ultrasound. Lobular carcinoma: * 20% ultrasonography and mammography not visible (false negative rate) to judge the disease may be useful. What is the predictive value of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for screening? The positive predictive value of was 64% in patients with BRCA or - BRCA - positive for Liao Ning, who had a familial or genetic predisposition to MRI, with a sensitivity of MRI of up to 79%. Family history: Previous atypical ductal hyperplasia or LCIS. History of chest wall or mediastinal radiotherapy.
