Abstract

Local recurrence after wide local excision for ductal carcinoma in situ ((DCIS) is a significant problem. Most of these recurrences develop in the same breast quadrant, suggesting occult residual disease. As part of a pilot study, breast MRI was used in two patients to evaluate the extent of disease. Both patients' breast MRT showed more extensive localization of DCIS which was not seen on conventional imaging. MRI may improve the operative management of patients with DCIS.
