abstract

  • Breast cancers in BRCA1 mutation carriers are associated with more aggressive tumor characteristics compared to BRCA2 and are less well seen on mammography. Mammography rarely identified cancers not visible on MRI. Thus, the omission of mammography in BRCA1 mutation carriers screened with MRI can be considered.
