ABSTRACT
Discusses research being done on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and mammoraphy of women at high risk of breast cancer in Great Britain. Reference to a study by M. O. Leach, C. R. Boggis, A. K. Dixon, D. F. Easton, R. A. Eeles, D. G. Evans et al., published in the 2005 issue of the "Lancet"; Performanceof contrast-enhanced (CE) MRI and mammography; Percentage of the sensitivity of women to CE MRI use; Correlation between cancer screening with CE MRI and mortality reduction.
