We demonstrate the first use of 3D high spectral and spatial resolution imaging to detect breast cancer. Images of the water peak height generated in this pilot study exhibited great morphological detail and near-complete fat suppression. This imaging technique could be used to target suspicious enhancing areas of the breast, or could be adapted to a fully bilateral technique by utilizing SENSE acceleration. High quality morphological images of the water peak height such as these could help improve the specificity of breast MRI.
