Re: MRI vs. mammography

Hi Hopee, Its my understanding that MRI's are more useful in detecting cancer in dense breast tissue. I have not heard that it should be used in place of a mammo..what I have read is that it should be used in addition to. You can contact your local American Cancer Society..I am sure that they can give you some recommendations!
Hope you get the answers you are looking for,
best wishes to you,
