Aim of this study is to retrospectively evaluate whether magnetic resonance (MR) imaging features can be used to predict which cases diagnosed as ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) without invasion by means of needle biopsy will have invasive disease at surgery. In this study, we found the MR imaging features were useful for the diagnosis of occult invasion in DCIS, especially 1cm histological invasive nest within the DCIS. That is considered for helpful to decide appropriate location of needle biopsy.
