For clinical breast cancer screening, contrast enhanced dynamic MR imaging should be conducted bilaterally in order to screen both breasts of a patient in a single clinic visit. This work presents a possible Direct Imaging method which takes advantage of the excellent isolation properties of micro-strip coils to obtain images of both breasts in the time usually required to scan a single breast.
