Abstract

Because of postradiation changes in the breast, evaluation of the efficacy of conservative local radiation treatment is difficult, and early detection of recurrent disease is often a diagnostic challenge. MR imaging of the breast aids in the follow-up of conservatively treated breast cancers. When recurrent disease is suspected, MR imaging allows for the differentiation between late postradiation changes in the breast and recurrent carcinoma.
