Differentiation of malignant and benign breast lesions using magnetization transfer imaging and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI.

PURPOSE To evaluate feasibility of using magnetization transfer ratio (MTR) in conjunction with dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) for differentiation of benign and malignant breast lesions at 3 Tesla. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study was IRB and HIPAA compliant. DCE-MRI scans followed by MT imaging were performed on 41 patients. Regions… CONTINUE READING
