This course discusses how to assess biological characteristics of breast lesions by MRI and explain how to utilize the parameters derived from MRI for the management of patients.

Target Audience
This course is aimed at radiologists, imaging scientists, and MR technologists who wish to learn about breast disease and the use of MRI for evaluation of these diseases.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Illustrate the current standard protocol of breast MRI;
- Illustrate the direction of future breast MRI;
- Demonstrate breast MRI protocol and parameters to evaluate biological characteristics of breast lesions;
- Describe prognostic pathological factors of breast lesions; and
- Demonstrate MRI radiomics of the breast.

Screening Breast MRI for High Risk Patients
Mitra Noroozian
Well-established indications for supplemental screening breast MRI include: 1) hereditary predisposition that renders a lifetime risk of >20% for developing breast cancer (genetic mutation or pedigree assessment); 2) chest radiation therapy between the ages of 10-30 (when breasts are developing and radiosensitive). Emerging data suggest adjunct MRI screening should be considered for women with LCIS/ALH/ADH and that it may benefit women with a personal history of breast cancer, particularly if initially diagnosed before age 50.
