OBJECTIVES To determine whether the addition of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to current patient evaluation by triple assessment would aid tumour localisation within the breast and thus reduce the reoperation rate in women with primary breast tumours who are scheduled for wide local excision (WLE), and to assess whether the addition of MRI would be cost-effective for the UK NHS.
