A simulation study was conducted to investigate the impact of TWIST view sharing on the dynamic breast MRI. A digital phantom was generated with spherical lesions of 3-9 mm diameter which exhibit wash-out type of contrast uptake. View sharing strategy, view order and acquisition parameters were identical to actual TWIST sequence and the typical clinical application. The results suggest that, with the same temporal resolution, backward TWIST view sharing provides the best result in tumor edge profile and dynamic enhancement evaluation.
