The specificity in dynamic contrast enhanced MRI in breast cancer may be increased by enabling the simultaneous detection of high morphological details. Therefore the high sensitivity of 7T is used to obtain sufficient SNR in the high spatial resolution that needs to be obtained within the time frame of contrast enhancement time curves. Therefore a 30 channel dedicated unilateral breast coil was designed for 7T that enables high acceleration while maintaining SNR.
