WHY AURORA BREAST MRI?
The Aurora System is the only FDA cleared, truly dedicated and truly integrated MRI system designed
specifically for 3-D bilateral breast imaging.
As you know, the American Cancer Society issued guidelines for breast MRI in March 2007 which stated that women at high risk for developing breast cancer (greater than 20% lifetime risk) should get an MRI and a mammogram every year.
The role of breast MRI in clinical practice continues to expand. As a result, we're starting to see more organizations move toward a dedicated breast MRI system, because they recognize it will have a dramatic impact on their
overall goals for breast disease management.
Aurora continues to work with the nation's premier breast centers, hospitals, and imaging centers to provide the ultimate in the detection, diagnosis, and biopsy capabilities for breast cancer. With Aurora's technological advances, we deliver superior imaging with the ultimate goal of earlier detection.
