MRI and Mammography Before Surgery in Patients With Stage I-II Breast Cancer

The purpose of this study is to test whether patients undergoing a breast MRI (magnetic
resonance imaging) before breast surgery will have better results after the surgery. Breast
tumors are routinely evaluated using mammograms and ultrasound before surgery. This study
would like to find out if using MRI in addition to mammography before surgery improves our
ability to evaluate tumors and decide what kind of surgery is best for the patient.
