OBJECTIVE Difficulties in the preoperative assessment of tumor size and extent result in a positive pathologic margin in up to 70% of patients undergoing breast conservation surgery. Although positive margins usually require reexcision, the location and extent of surgery required are often difficult to establish by current imaging techniques. We investigated the accuracy of three-dimensional rotating delivery of excitation off resonance (3D RODEO) MR imaging of the breast in revealing the… CONTINUE READING
