In brief: Out of the field

Cardiac mr is centered on the heart.
You may see on the border of the field partial breast tissue, but cardiac mr is not dedicated to breast. It is not the same exam, no the same protocol. Palpation and mammogram are the best. If something shows on the cardiac mr, then do mammogram.
