Magnetic resonance - Mammography (MRM) is opening new avenues in the diagnosis of breast cancer, the most frequent cancer in women. The International Congress on MRM is bringing experts in this field together to discuss all aspects of this novel imaging modality. This year the congress will again take place at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany from September 27 – 29, 2012.
High sensitivity but also high specificity
Despite the clinical practice of MRM during the past 28 years and the proven essential advantages regarding the detection and differentiation of small breast lesions - a large number of technical, biological, and pathophysiological problems must still be considered. For years, the phrase “high sensitivity but low specificity” has been used like a mantra to characterize MRM, which is luckily not true if MRM is applied in a high quality. MRM has the capability to detect breast lesions much earlier than conventional imaging techniques - and in these stages the prognosis of the disease is much better.
