Methods and materials

30 patients with proven breast cancer (BIRADS 6) detected at x-ray mammography (Mx) and ultrasound (US), candidate for neo-adjuvant chemotherapy (age 18-70 years old), underwent standard MR examination with contrast media administration, including Cube-IDEAL/Flex and 2D T2 FSE fat-sat sequences. Two independent breast MD radiologists evaluated 3D Cube-IDEAL/Flex and the 2D T2 FSE images based on contrast resolution, spatial resolution, lesion contour delineation (if applicable), fat signal suppression homogeneity and scan times. Tumor size measurements on 3D Cube-IDEAL/Flex have been compared with those of 2D T2 FSE before and every two cycles after neo-adjuvant chemotherapy, by means of statistic T-test.
