Swift, state-of-the-art breast imaging means a clearer diagnosis – faster.

FAST breast MRI is now available for breast cancer screening at Cape Cod Healthcare – the first healthcare system in Massachusetts to provide this service.

This screening is offered via our 3T MRI – the only one of its kind south of Boston – to provide high-resolution images at a fraction of the time and cost of a traditional MRI. Painless and radiation-free, this accelerated 3 Tesla MAGNETOM Verio MRI scan is more detailed than traditional mammography.

FAST MRI takes just three-to-five minutes to perform, versus the 40 minutes of a traditional MRI and it provides a series of images that can show a more detailed view of the breast or a suspected mass.

FAST MRI can be performed in between routine mammograms or as a companion screening to a routine mammogram. And it can be instrumental in revealing particularly aggressive cancers or providing additional screening for women who are diagnosed as having dense breast tissue.

FAST breast MRI is not covered by most insurances and patients will be asked to pay $450 out-of-pocket when they schedule their appointment. Physician referral is required prior to scheduling. Financial assistance may be available for eligible women. FAST breast MRI may not be right for everyone and traditional mammograms remain a viable option for women in accordance with their doctor’s advice.

To learn more about the FAST MRI for breast cancer screening, contact Cuda Women’s Health Center at 508-790-7622.
