"Internal Breast Tumor Heterogeneity On T2-Weighted Imaging"
Linxi Shi, PhD

Clinically, T2-weighted acquisitions are utilized primarily for the identification of cysts or for adjunct lesion characterization information. However, recent studies have demonstrated the correlation of T2-weighted tumor heterogeneity to response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy, survival outcomes, and histologic grade. In this work, I will briefly talk about the lesion heterogeneity in conventional 3D Spin-Echo T2 (CUBE) versus DESS (Double echo steady state) T2 weighted sequences. These quantitative analysis requires high image quality which is hindered by the non-uniformity artifacts due to B0 and B1 variations. An algorithm for image non-uniformity correction will be introduced for quantitative analysis in breast MRI images.
