Purpose: In this study, we compare readout-segmented echo-planar imaging (rs-EPI) Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) to a work-in-progress single-shot EPI with modified Inversion Recovery Background Suppression (ss-EPI-mIRBS) sequence at 3 T using a b-value of 2000 s/mm on image quality, lesion visibility and evaluation time.
Method: From September 2017 to December 2018, 23 women (one case used for training) with known breast cancer were included in this study, after providing signed informed consent. Women were scanned with the conventional rs-EPI sequence and the work-in-progress ss-EPI-mIRBS during the same examination. Read More
