McFarland Clinic now offers screening breast MRI in Ames. This technology was recently added to the McFarland Breast Imaging Department.
Screening breast MRI is a supplemental exam designed to find cancers that may be missed with mammography alone, especially in women with dense breast tissue. Breast MRI can help increase early detection of breast cancer.
“Offering the most advanced screening options, like breast MRI, is the next step in aiding cancer detection and improving outcomes for women with breast cancer,” says Grant Goldsberry, MD, McFarland Clinic Radiologist.
Insurance coverage varies and is often dependent on breast cancer risk. Mammography reports at McFarland Clinic include a personalized breast cancer risk score. If insurance coverage is not available for an individual, the cost is $399.
