The MOLLI Marker is Magnetic Resonance (MR) conditional

The MOLLI Marker is intended to be placed percutaneously in soft tissue to temporarily mark a surgical site intended for surgical removal.

A patient with an implanted MOLLI Marker can be imaged using a 1.5 T or 3.0 T MR system.

Evidence-based use of MRI in breast cancer

Role of MRI in breast cancer management

  • High sensitivity but not so specific.
  • Highly sensitive tool for diagnostic problem-solving.
  • MRI evaluations cost 10x more than screening mammography.

MRI for breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment

  • MRI screening indicated for BRCA mutation or at high risk of breast cancer.
  • Preoperative MR imaging does not improve surgical outcomes.
  • MRI indicated to monitor response during neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
