PURPOSE To investigate the histopathological characteristics of breast carcinomas with strong high-signal intensity (SHi) on T2-weighted (T2W) MR images (T2-SHi), and discuss the differential diagnosis between T2-SHi breast carcinomas and T2-SHi fibroadenomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty of 480 breast carcinomas examined by MRI were defined as tumors with T2-SHi (defined as homogeneous higher signal intensity (SI) compared to surrounding normal breast tissue on fat-suppressed T2W imaging… CONTINUE READING
