Abstract

To obtain objective and concrete data by physically assessing the quality of breast magnetic resonance images based on the fat-suppression effect by the modified Dixon method (mDixon) and frequency-selective fat suppression (e-Thrive) using an original lipid-content breast phantom that could easily reveal the influence of non-uniform fat suppression in breast magnetic resonance imaging. The fat-suppression uniformity was approximately seven times superior when using mDixon compared with when using e-Thrive. mDixon appears to have a significant advantage.
