A form of breast screening called "PEM" imaging may provide more accurate results for women with dense breasts or fluctuating hormones.
Researchers in Florida say these women face a higher risk for false positives when they have a breast MRI. PEM imaging involves injecting small amounts of radioactive material that highlights breast lesions.
The researchers found PEM imaging was able to detect 100 percent of lesions in fatty breasts, and 93 percent of lesions in women with and without a history of hormone therapy.
