Breast MRI has been shown to be a valuable additional tool for breast imagers to use to provide optimal patient care. Because of the benefit that MRI can provide, the technology is now being used for a wide variety of indications, from evaluation of the extent of disease to evaluation of the high-risk patient, evaluation of tumor response to chemotherapy, and search for occult primary tumor. This review will cover the various indications for breast MRI, discuss research to date, as well as provide case examples. © 2014 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
