I want to give a thumbs up to a relatively recent procedure in which contrast dye can be injected into your arm right before you have your mammogram.  This is called a Contrast Enhanced Mammogram.  The doctor who read mine told me that in her opinion, this is just as good as getting a breast MRI.  And it costs a whole lot less (out of pocket expenses).  It is considered a type of diagnostic mammogram and the doctor will read it directly.  Here in Virginia, we have 2 hospitals which offer this.  Sarah Cannon Institute (affiliated with Henrico Doctors Hospital) in Richmond, and Univ. of VA Medical Center in Charlottesville.  I hope, in time, other hospitals will invest in this.  I send my love and best wishes to everyone!  Heart
