OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to test dynamic MRI in evaluating mammographically detected suspicious microcalcifications. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred twelve patients with mammographically detected microcalcifications with BI-RADS category 5 (n = 78) or 4 (n = 34) lesions were studied at 17 centers a using 3D gradient-echo dynamic coronal technique (< or = 3 mm thickness) and 0.1 mmol/kg of gadoteridol. A pathologic sample was obtained in all cases. Agreement between the major… CONTINUE READING
