MIP/FAST Screening Compares Favorably with Mammography, Allows Substantial Additional Yield of Invasive Breast Cancers

A study comparing accelerated MRI screening to mammography indicates that accelerated MRI screening has the potential to save time in the review of results while also allowing for a substantial additional yield of biologically relevant invasive cancers and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) in women with an increased risk of breast cancer (Abstract 1). Christiane K. Kuhl, MD, presented the results of the study during the Risk Assessment, Prevention, Detection, and Screening Poster Discussion Session on Saturday.
