This study aimed to investigate whether a simplified breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) protocol consisting of a localizer, one precontrast sequence, and three time-point postcontrast sequences (at 28 seconds, 84 seconds and 252 seconds after the contrast agent administration) is suitable for the characterization of breast lesions as compared to a full diagnostic protocol (FDP). This study also aimed to review the current literature concerning abbreviated breast MRI protocols and offer an alternative protocol.

Abstract

This study aimed to investigate whether a simplified breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) protocol consisting of a localizer, one precontrast sequence, and three time-point postcontrast sequences (at 28 seconds, 84 seconds and 252 seconds after the contrast agent administration) is suitable for the characterization of breast lesions as compared to a full diagnostic protocol (FDP). This study also aimed to review the current literature concerning abbreviated breast MRI protocols and offer an alternative protocol.
