Despite the fact that satisfactory segmentation results were obtained, this method is not suitable for use in breast MRI with its various mixed tissues and low contrasts.
(4,21) In breast MRI, lesions are characterized based on their morphologic features and dynamic contrast enhancement and kinetic pattern such as signal intensity or speed of enhancement combined with morphologic patterns.
The protocol used for breast MRI included (a: Axial table-I, table-II Spine Echo sequences b: Axial Short Tau Inversion recover (STIR) sequence for fat suppression and c: Axial DWI echo planar sequence using a combination of b-values of 0 and 750 mm2/sec).
Breast MRI is estimated to detect 18 or more additional cancers per 1,000 women, although it is also likely to find areas of concern that aren't cancer.
Tru cut needle biopsy is performed in majority of the cases, however when the abnormality is very small, subtle or when seen only on the mammograms in the form of calcifications or only on the breast MRI, vacuum-assisted breast biopsies (VABB) are preferred as they increase the accuracy and sensitivity of getting a representative sample from the abnormal area.
