Breast Biopsy Workflow with syngo MR XA20 – How I Do It

This article provides an overview of MR-guided breast biopsy performed using the Breast Biopsy software, syngo MR XA20 version (Siemens Healthcare, Erlangen, Germany). [...]

Introducing 3T MR Imaging with the new MAGNETOM Lumina

The MAGNETOM Lumina is a new 3T Open Bore system, incorporating artificial intelligence, matrix coils that automatically adjust to patient biovariability and parallel imaging/simultaneous multi-slice/compressed sensing technologies. [...]

First Clinical Experiences with Simultaneous Multi-Slice Accelerated Diffusion-Weighted Imaging Throughout the Body

Dr. Valentin Tissot (CHRU, Brest, France) presents cases throughout the whole body that demonstrate that Simultaneous Multi-Slice (SMS) helps to accelerate diffusion-weighted imaging in almost all clinical cases where DWI is commonly applied. Robust results and good image quality can be achieved with an SMS factor of 2, which allows one to achieve near 2-fold acceleration. He also shows that ADC values are highly reproducible between the conventional and the accelerated technique. [...]

Invasive lobular carcinoma

Clinical history: 59 year old female presented for breast MRI after the ultrasound-guided core biopsy of a 10 x 11 mm mass in the 4 o’clock axis of the left breast showed invasive lobular carcinoma. [...]

Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (Moderately Differentiated)

A 44-year-old female presented with an abnormal right breast imaging by routine screening mammography. She then obtained a breast ultrasound, which showed a solid mass in the right breast measuring. A core needle biopsy was performed revealing intraductal adenocarcinoma. An MRI was the obtained to evaluate the extent of the disease. [...]

Investigative Radiology October 2021

Contrast-enhanced (CE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most effective imaging modality for breast cancer detection. A contrast agent–free examination technique would be desirable for breastMRI screening. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the capability to detect and characterize suspicious breast lesions with an abbreviated, non–contrast-enhanced MRI protocol featuring ultra-high b-value diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) compared with CE images [...]
