This study presents quantified levels of phosphorylated metabolites in glandular tissue of human breast using (31)P magnetic resonance spectroscopy at 7 T. We used a homebuilt (1)H/(31)P radiofrequency coil to obtain artifact-free (31)P MR spectra of glandular tissue of healthy females by deploying whole breast free induction decay (FID) detection with(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize ex vivo healthy human axillary lymph nodes on 7 Tesla MRI and to correlate the findings with pathological analysis as a first step towards non-invasive staging of breast cancer patients in the future. METHODS Four axillary lymph node dissection (ALND) specimens from 2 autopsy patients, who had no cancer, were examined on a(More)
Introduction: Axillary lymph node status is the most important factor determining prognosis in breast cancer patients. Assessment of nodal status currently requires surgical resection. First a sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is performed, which, if positive for metastasis, is followed by a complete axillary lymph node dissection. These procedures are(More)
