Yearly MRI screening is not recommended for women whose lifetime risk of breast cancer is less than 15%.

Women at high risk include those who:

If MRI is used, it should be in addition to a screening mammogram. This is because although MRI is a more sensitive test, it may still miss some cancers that a mammogram would detect.
