Scanning Systems, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Mammographic
Definition : Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning systems dedicated to the imaging of the breast and whose magnetic field is typically in the order of 0.5 Tesla. These systems include a patient table designed to position the patient for optimal breast imaging and specialized breast surface coils. Mammographic MRI scanning systems are used as an adjunct to mammography in mammograms that are difficult to interpret.
