In addition to conventional imaging techniques, magnetic resonance (MR) mammography is an important tool in the diagnosis of breast cancer. It has proved to be the method of choice especially for the differential diagnosis of discrepant findings between mammography and ultrasound as well as the detection of multifocal and multicentric disease. In this context MR mammography is a meaningful method for the planning of breast preserving surgery and seems likely to become routine practice as long as the preconditions for high quality performance are guaranteed.
