MRI screening for breast cancer: screening for breast cancer with MRI in genetically high-risk women

Mundy, L, Merlin, T
Record ID 32006000592
Authors' results and conclusions: There are currently limited options available to this vulnerable group of high-risk women. Based on the available evidence and the considerable international interest, it appears that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) screening may be of benefit for women considered to be at high-risk of breast cancer.
Authors' recommendations: HealthPACT recommends that a Horizon Scanning report be conducted.
