    Talk Title: Data Acquisition for Quantitative Breast MRI

    Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series

    Abstract: This talk will cover acquisition approaches for quantitative breast MRI techniques to assess perfusion and diffusion. Perfusion is typically measured using dynamic contrast-enhanced acquisition, which forces a trade-off between temporal and spatial resolution. Advanced sampling schemes that include considerations for fat suppression will be shown including randomized sampling, parallel imaging and compressed sensing. Diffusion-weighted MRI is challenging since motion corrupts acquisitions. Two approaches are (1) to acquire single-shot images that are limited in resolution or (2) to acquire multi-shot images and correct for motion. Variations of the multi-shot approach including multi-band acquisition and steady-state acquisitions will be described.
