Improved Breast Dynamic Contrast Enhanced-magnetic Resonance Imaging (DCE-MRI) With Sweep Imaging With Fourier Transform (SWIFT)
Patients will be asked to come to the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) at the
University of Minnesota. Researchers will interview the patient and describe procedures and
risks. An intravenous (IV) line will be placed in an upper extremity for infusing magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI) contrast dye. Baseline MRI scans will be done. These MRI
measurements will be compared with clinical, radiological and pathological findings (the
Follow-up contact will occur within one year after the MRI to determine whether a pathology
report is available.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Optimize Sweep Imaging with Fourier Transform magnetic resonance imaging (SWIFT MRI) for Breast
Optimization and validation of the basic SWIFT sequence - develop guidelines for minimal clinical implementation.
