Study Suggests Low Yield of MRI Surveillance After Bilateral Mastectomy

A study of 159 women, including BRCA1/2 carriers, who had a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction and underwent breast MRI screening, showed few women had detection of breast cancer through MRI after their bilateral mastectomy. These results support the recommendation that BRCA1/2 carriers with or without breast cancer who have a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction do not need breast MRIs for screening.
