Accurate automated tissue segmentation of premature neonatal magnetic resonance images is a crucial task for quantification of brain injury and its impact on early postnatal growth and later cognitive development. In such studies it is common for scans to be acquired shortly after birth or later during the hospital stay and therefore occur at arbitrary(More)
Diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) holds potential to improve the detection and biological characterization of breast cancer. DWI is increasingly being incorporated into breast MRI protocols to address some of the shortcomings of routine clinical breast MRI. Potential benefits include improved differentiation of benign and malignant breast lesions, assessment and(More)
Purpose To investigate whether specific imaging features on breast magnetic resonance (MR) images are associated with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) recurrence risk after definitive treatment. Materials and Methods Patients with DCIS who underwent preoperative dynamic contrast material-enhanced (DCE) MR imaging between 2004 and 2014 with ipsilateral(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether a semiautomated voxel selection technique improves interreader reproducibility for breast apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurements. METHODS Three readers retrospectively performed ADC measurements of 31 breast lesions (16 malignant, 15 benign) and contralateral normal tissue in 26 women both unassisted (manual(More)
