Gadolinium-enhanced dynamic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is playing an increasingly important diagnostic role in patients with breast cancer. Because of the multi-focal nature of the disease, it is mandatory to cover all of both breasts, not only in the initial scan, but also at subsequent follow-up. This requires volume acquisitions with a temporal resolution limited to 60-80 seconds, which is insufficient to clearly discriminate malignant from benign rates of contrast uptake.
