We show that B0 mapping is highly sensitive to spiculations at the breast lesion margin. Thus, it could be used as adjunct to standard clinical imaging, for better morphological assesment. This is especially important in small lesions that present with a malignant-type contrast-enhancement curve. It can also be an important option for patients who can not use MR contrast agents.
