Intraductal carcinoma (DCIS) was once an uncommon disease. Today, DCIS represents 20-30% of breast cancers that are diagnosed. Mammography has been the gold standard in detecting DCIS, however recent evidence demonstrates that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be superior to mammography in detecting DCIS. In addition, MRI may be able to detect high grade, mammographically occult DCIS that are more likely to progress on to become invasive carcinoma.
