Aim The aim of this study was to assess the role and contribution of MRI in preoperative planning of patients with breast cancer who are considered potentially suitable for therapeutic mammoplasty. Patients and methods A total of 30 female patients with breast cancer undergoing breast surgery were divided into two groups based on preoperative MRI findings: in one group, the surgical plan was changed, and in the other one, the surgical plan remained unchanged. Results Final surgical decision was changed in most patients (53.3%) owing to additional suspicious breast lesions detected on preoperative breast MRI, whereas the final surgical decision was the same in 14 (46.7%); the initial decision was unchanged. Conclusion Preoperative breast MRI may be helpful in surgical decision for patients considered for therapeutic mammoplasty.
