* Female
* Documented breast physical examination,
* Documented mammography within 3 months of the MR studies
* Palpable or mammographically-detected suspect breast lesions

* Severe claustrophobia
* Aneurysm clips
* Pregnancy
* Current lactation
* Other conditions precluding proximity to a strong magnetic field.
* Received an enhanced MR procedure within 48 hours,
