November 4, 2008 – The Aurora 1.5Tesla Dedicated Breast MRI System has been installed and is now available to the women of Puerto Rico through the Advanced Breast Center in the city of Cayey.

The most recent American Cancer Society guidelines recommend breast MRI for women at high risk of breast cancer, and now women in Puerto Rico have access to the only FDA cleared dedicated breast MRI system specifically designed for breast imaging.

“We want to create a culture at the Advanced Breast Center that best serves women and their specific breast health needs, and the Aurora Breast MRI is the most advanced MRI system available to help us meet the unique imaging needs of women,” said Vidal Rosario, M.D., president of the Advanced Breast Center and a leading surgeon for more than 20 years. “Women in Puerto Rico now have access to a highly sophisticated MRI that is most sensitive in exclusively detecting breast cancer. This is especially significant for women ages 25 to 50, who make up 50 percent of Puerto Rico’s breast cancer patients and suffer from the highest mortality rate as reported by the Puerto Rico Department of Health.”

Unlike traditional whole-body MRI systems, the Aurora Breast MRI’s customized table design provides ultimate comfort for women, as well as full coverage of both breasts, the chest wall and axillae in a single bilateral scan, without any compromise in image contrast or resolution.

The bilateral 3-D SpiralRODEO image acquisition and fat suppression technology on the Aurora Breast MRI provides improved acquisition efficiency, resulting in enhanced resolution and decreased scan time.

The many benefits of the Aurora Breast MRI also include the proprietary AuroraBIOPSY, a computer-automated and fully integrated MR-guided biopsy technology, which virtually eliminates human error and precisely determines needle placement for a seamless procedure. The biopsy capability is accurate and fast, allowing for multiple targets in the same breast in a single procedure. With the addition of the Aurora Breast MRI, the Advanced Breast Center now also is the only facility in Puerto Rico to offer both breast MRI and breast biopsies in one location.
