MR techniques providing accurate measurement of relative volumetric water content and multicomponent T2 relaxation times from a large volume of interest, have been implemented for characterization of breast tissue in vivo. In a sequence of 20-s breath-holds, data are obtained from much of the breast volume while suppressing signal from the chest wall and torso. Relative water content of each breast is calculated from one-dimensional fat and water profiles obtained using a hybrid two-point Dixon… CONTINUE READING
