Abbreviated breast MRI – what is it?

22nd June 2019, Spectrum Medical Imaging

Dynamic contrast enhanced breast – MRI must contain a minimal number of MRI sequences that is necessary to detect small enhancing breast lesions. What if we cut down the number of sequences but yet have enough accuracy to detect small early cancers? That’s what AB-MRI is – less number of sequences but yet enough to detect small lesions. AB-MRI takes less than 10 mins to acquire the required images versus 17 minutes for DCE-MRI with a reading time of 30 seconds for AB-MRI. Spectrum Medical Imaging now offers this exciting service.
