Abbreviated Breast MRI

One of the most effective tests for breast cancer screening in dense breasts.

Detecting breast cancer early can help you get the treatment you need before other health complications arise. Hilton Head Regional Healthcare is now offering abbreviated breast MRI scans (AB-MR) for a faster, more accurate and more cost-efficient way to detect breast cancer than traditional mammograms. We are the first in Beaufort County to offer this innovative breast cancer screening tool. The standard MRI scan takes 45 minutes, while the AB-MR scan only takes about 10 minutes.

AB-MR is recommended for women who have dense breast tissue on a mammogram or have intermediate risk of 15-20%. Every woman who has a mammogram at Hilton Head Hospital, Bluffton Medical Campus or Coastal Carolina Hospital will have a breast cancer risk assessment completed. Talk with your physician about your results to determine next steps and see if AB-MR is right for you.
