Contrast-enhanced dynamic MR mammography can provide important additional diagnostic information when performed for certain indications. When suspicious lesions are identified on MR mammography and cannot be reproduced using other imaging modalities, a decision must be made as to its management, i. e. further diagnostic work-up. One possibility is the short-term follow-up of such findings, resulting in higher costs and a possible delay in the start of treatment of a malignant lesion. An alternative to a follow-up is an MR-guided intervention. MR-compatible equipment has been developed for this purpose. This includes equipment specialized for percutaneous biopsy and preoperative localization. The following is an overview of the diagnostic value of MR-guided biopsy and preoperative localization including the relevant literature.
