The application of MRE to the breast as an adjunct to classical MR-Mammography is feasible in the clinical workflow. It adds valuable diagnostic information and allows to differentiate different grades of aggressivity via the ratio of viscosity to elasticity. Differentiation between benign and malignant is mainly possible via the viscosity with significant overlap in elasticity. Care must be taken in terms of sequence design as well as hardware to ensure optimal data quality, which is paramount here as lesions tend to be small.
