Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Females ≥18 years of age
  • Undergoing annual breast MRI because of a high risk of breast cancer due to any of the following:

    • Known BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers, or is untested for BRCA but is a first degree relative of a BRCA mutation carrier
    • History of radiation to the chest between 10-30 years of age (e.g. Hodgkin's Disease)
    • History of Cowdens or Li Fraumeni Syndrome
    • A first degree relative with Cowdens or Li Fraumeni Syndrome
    • Prior breast biopsy positive for lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) or atypical lobular hyperplasia or atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH)
    • Family history consistent with a hereditary breast cancer syndrome and estimated personal lifetime cancer risk ≥25% using the IBIS risk evaluator

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnant or lactating
  • History of invasive breast cancer or ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)
