Of a total of 191 magnetic resonance breast studies performed since March 1984, 82 were performed with gradient-echo fast low-angle shot (FLASH) sequences and fast imaging with steady precession (FISP). These techniques permit imaging of thin and contiguous sections, resulting in high resolution of the parenchymal structure. Intravenous injection of 0.1 mmol/kg of gadolinium diethylenetriamine-pentaacetic acid dimeglumine (50% of the dose used in spin-echo sequences) aided in detection of… CONTINUE READING
