An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a test that creates detailed images of organs, bones, and other structures inside your body. This test uses large magnets and a computer to make these images. It does not use radiation.

A breast MRI is most often used to check for breast cancer and other abnormalities in the breast. It’s often used to screen for breast cancer in those who have a high risk of the disease.
