Why You Might Need an Accelerated Breast MRI

The prospect of a breast cancer diagnosis is scary, especially if you know you’re at high risk because of your family history or because you’ve already had the disease. So why not take charge of your own health with an Accelerated Breast MRI™, also known as abbreviated breast MRI, at American Health Imaging?

What Is an Accelerated Breast MRI?

An Accelerated Breast MRI at AHI uses the latest magnetic resonance imaging technology to screen for breast cancer with zero radiation and no painful compression like a mammogram.

Reasons to Consider Getting an Accelerated Breast MRI

If you are at high risk for breast cancer or have dense breast tissue, you should consider getting an Accelerated Breast MRI in addition to your annual mammogram. The screening provides greater detail than a traditional mammogram and is able to detect smaller tumors that a mammogram might miss. Also, if you are pregnant or have a compromised immune system but need detailed breast imaging, the lack of radiation makes an Accelerated Breast MRI a safe choice.

An Accelerated Breast MRI Is Quick and Easy

An Accelerated Breast MRI takes just 12 to 18 minutes, a quarter of the time of a regular breast MRI. offers convenient appointment times, including Saturday appointments, at its Decatur, Lawrenceville and Sandy Springs locations. Our all-female staff also ensures a comfortable environment during a sensitive time.

You Don’t Need a Referral for an Accelerated Breast MRI

In the past, an Accelerated Breast MRI was usually only available to high-risk patients, and they often had a hefty price tag attached. But at AHI, any woman can receive the screening at a cost of $450, without a physician referral or insurance approval—a low cost to pay for your own peace of mind.
