Aurora Imaging creates Breast MRI Society
As manufacturer of the only FDA-cleared MRI system specifically designed for breast imaging, Aurora Imaging Technology (North Andover, Massachusetts) has taken the lead on supporting breast radiologists and advancing the role of dedicated breast MRI by forming the Aurora Breast MRI Society — a group of healthcare professionals dedicated to diagnosing breast cancer earlier and evaluating breast disease, utilizing the most advanced breast imaging modality available.
The mission of the society is to further spur and expand the clinical role of breast MRI, as well as educate the medical profession, public and healthcare industry about the vital role of breast MRI in earlier detection and more effective evaluation of breast disease.
