Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the structures within the breast. It is a noninvasive medical test primarily used as a supplemental tool to breast screening with mammography or ultrasound.



Central Oregon MRI and St. Charles Medical Center have acquired the state- of-the-art Sentinelle Vanguard® imaging system. The dedicated Breast MR Coil System provides unprecedented improvements in image quality, ease of access for biopsies and patient comfort.
