      MRIs show more than do mammograms or ultrasounds (except when it comes to microcalcifications, which MRIs don't detect - mammograms do). At least this is what my doctor told me. If you have dense breasts, MRIs are the best way to detect cancer. Btw, my diagnosis was 15 years ago, and until last year I was prescribed annual breast MRIs. Last year the nurse practitioner I see at Sloan-Kettering told me that my breasts are no longer dense, so I should get only mammograms and ultrasounds. I wish you the best.
