Breast MRI at 7 Tesla with a bilateral coil and robust fat suppression.

PURPOSE To develop a bilateral coil and fat suppressed T1-weighted sequence for 7 Tesla (T) breast MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS A dual-solenoid coil and three-dimensional (3D) T1w gradient echo sequence with B1+ insensitive fat suppression (FS) were developed. T1w FS image quality was characterized through image uniformity and fat-water contrast… (More)
