abstract

  • A "probably benign" interpretation was given to 24% of high-risk women at their first breast MR imaging screening examination. In 7-10% of women with "probably benign" interpretations, malignant disease subsequently developed in an area initially judged to be probably benign; of these malignancies, more than half were DCIS, and more than half were detected by MR imaging only.
