Question

  1. What is the comparative clinical effectiveness of concurrent versus sequential digital mammography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for breast cancer screening in high-risk patients?
  2. What is the comparative cost-effectiveness of concurrent versus sequential digital mammography and MRI for breast cancer screening in high-risk patients?
  3. What are the evidence-based guidelines regarding the combined use of digital mammography and MRI for breast cancer screening in high-risk patients?

Key Message

One economic evaluation was identified regarding the comparative cost-effectiveness of concurrent versus sequential digital mammography and MRI for breast cancer screening in high-risk patients. In addition, two evidence-based guidelines were identified regarding the combined use of digital mammography and MRI for breast cancer screening in high-risk patients.
