PURPOSE In our study we aim at the quantification of the heterogeneity for differential diagnosis of breast lesions in MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS We tested a software tool for quantification of heterogeneity. The software tool provides a three-dimensional analysis of the whole breast lesion. The lesions were divided in regions with similar perfusion characteristics. Voxels were merged to the same region, if the perfusion parameters (wash-in, wash-out, integral, peak enhancement and time to… CONTINUE READING
