Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a preinvasive malignancy that currently accounts for over 20% of newly diagnosed breast cancers in the US. This article reviews how clinical magnetic resonance imaging methods are being implemented for the detection, diagnosis and characterization of DCIS. Research strategies that are being pursued to help realize the full potential for magnetic resonance imaging to improve the outcomes of patients diagnosed with DCIS are discussed.
