All patients on study will undergo an MRI of the breast(s).
Patients who qualify for the study and consent to be included will undergo placement of areola and nipple markers that will be held in place with tape for the duration of the ordered MRI study. The markers consist of latex-free plastic tubing filled with vegetable based hydrogenated oil that is solid at room temperature. This creates a fat density marker that will define the areola but does not interfere with or create artifact onto the underlying tissue. The marker can be placed by the investigator or available MRI technician instructed in marker placement. The patient will then undergo the MRI. The patients participation in the study will end with the MRI.
- Patterns of Breast Gland Attachment [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Identify the various patterns of breast gland attachment to the overlying skin.
