We believe that a short breast MR examination contains the necessary information to allow an accurate diagnosis. The purpose of this study is to determine the technical feasibility of a short examination and to obtain preliminary comparative data against the standard examination. Nineteen participants were imaged on a 3.0T scanner twice (standard and short). Results suggest that the short breast MR examination is not only feasible but has good agreement with the standard examination. This study has demonstrated that high spatial and temporal resolution data can be acquire in only 12minutes with similar results to much longer MR examinations.
