BACKGROUND Reports on the specificity of breast MRI are heterogeneous, depending on the respective setting of the performed study. PURPOSE To retrospectively estimate the sensitivity and especially the specificity of breast MRI in the non-screening setting as an adjunct to mammography sorted by breast density and to estimate the accuracy of breast MRI in cases rated BI-RADS 0 and 3 mammographically. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 216 consecutive patients with referral to breast MRI and… CONTINUE READING
