The clinic also features the latest technology for breast cancer treatment, the hospital said.

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, more than 250,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer annually, and more than 40,500 will die.

Moreover, a woman's risk of breast cancer doubles if she has a relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Unfortunately, MRI's are too expensive for routine screening so the study authors suggest talking to your doctor if you are a high-risk candidate.

The American College of Radiologys new guidelines also recommend all women have a breast cancer risk assessment by 30, especially if they are African-American or of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, due to their unusually high risk for the disease. Ultrasound may be used to determine whether a new breast lump is a solid mass or a fluid-filled cyst.
