Fat-Based Registration of Breast Dynamic Contrast Enhanced Water Images
Dynamic contrast-enhanced breast MRI scans take 5-10 minutes to acquire, so motion between the temporal phases is a common problem that must be corrected before post-processing. This paper proposes a new technique to register the images and correct for motion using Dixon-based fat- and water-separated images. Because the fat signal does not change over time, the fat images can be used to determine the registration that should then be applied to correct the water images, which are the ones of true clinical interest.
