What is 4D Breast MRI?

 RMI is an accredited facility for Breast MRIs4D Breast MRI (four-dimensional breast magnetic resonance imaging) is part of RMI’s four-pronged approach to fighting breast cancer, along with mammography, and breast ultrasound. By introducing 4D Breast MRI to the Great Lakes community, RMI has expanded on its tradition of leadership as an accredited Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, as the first practice in Michigan to be approved by the Mammogram Medicare Screening program.
The most advanced technological development in breast imaging, 4D Breast MRI supplements detailed three-dimensional MRI (see our MRI for general information) data with a “fourth dimension” of information based on time and motion, creating an enhanced view of the real-time functioning of the breast and any suspected lesions or tumors.

RMI has top radiologists to perform Breast MRIs.4D Breast MRI may be recommended as a follow-up diagnostic exam after a suspicious mammogram. For women at high risk of breast cancer or who have dense breast tissue, 4D Breast MRI may be recommended as an additional screening method in conjunction with the annual mammogram.

Four-dimensional imaging gives doctors a better chance of finding breast cancer early, and may reveal tumors that other imaging techniques might not. If cancer is detected, four-dimensional imaging makes it easier to discover additional tumors in the same or opposite breast and provides better information to guide treatment decisions, such as lumpectomy (removing diseased tissue only) vs. mastectomy (removing the entire breast), or single vs. double mastectomy.

As you can see when you view a photograph of the examination room, RMI’s MRI unit at Lennon Road has an open feel for greater patient comfort.
