Technical Guidelines for Magnetic Resonance Imaging for the Surveillance of Women at Higher Risk of Developing Breast Cancer
The NHSBSP is responsible for setting and monitoring the standards for the imaging surveillance of women who are assessed as being at higher risk of developing breast cancer. Their elevated risk may be due to a family history of breast cancer, or previous radiotherapy treatment for Hodgkin's disease.
This guidance sets out the technical standards required for the provision of breast MRI as part of the imaging surveillance of women at higher risk, and describes the arrangements for reporting MRI examinations and for quality assurance of MRI surveillance.
