not spread to the lymph nodes, he said.

A contrast dye used routinely in MRI scans not only highlights the size and location of the tumor but also details the blood vessels feeding the tumor. The kinetics or activity of the contrast dye in the tumor provided some key parameters for comparing MRI to traditional surgical tumor staging, he said.

"MRI is evolving rapidly as a diagnostic tool for breast cancer, particularly among women with high risk for the disease, because not only does it give us traditional anatomic information about tumors but information about the biology of the tumor as well," Loiselle said.

Prospective studies will need to be done to confirm the value of MRI scans in staging tumors for radiation therapy, he said.
