3D MRI with Compressed SENSE of patient with breast cancer

Case Study
Koyama, Takashi, M.D., Ph.D. Kurashiki Central Hospital • Japan
Kumashiro, Masayuki, Ph.D. Kurashiki Central Hospital • Japan
Fukushima, Sachi, R.T. Kurashiki Central Hospital • Japan

Patient history

A patient with suspected breast cancer underwent MRI on Ingenia 1.5T at Kurashiki Central Hospital, Japan. MR images with and without compressed SENSE were compared in this examination.

MR examination

Compressed SENSE was used to reduce the scan time in order to decrease the time that
the patient may experience discomfort and pain, both of which may lead to patient motion.
The 3D BreastVIEW and 3D high resolution mDIXON images show high quality images even
with the shorter scan time. Both mDIXON contrasts are acquired in the same sequence.

Impact of Compressed SENSE

The 3D BreastVIEW images show high quality even with the shorter scan time. Compressed SENSE helps to obtain high quality images using 3D BreastVIEW in a shorter time than in our previous exam protocol.

For breast imaging, a fast, high resolution scan can be important for a female patient having to lie in an uncomfortable, face-down position in the scanner. Compressed SENSE also helps us to obtain higher* quality images using 3D BreastVIEW and 3D high resolution mDIXON sequences in the same examination time as in our previous exam protocol.
