RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES This study was designed to assess the efficacy of dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast combined with pharmacokinetic analysis of gadolinium (Gd)-DTPA uptake in the diagnosis of local recurrence of early stage breast carcinoma. METHODS Fifty women treated with breast-conserving surgery and radiotherapy underwent breast MRI. Dynamic magnetic resonance data obtained at four preselected slice locations were analyzed to examine Gd-DTPA… CONTINUE READING
