The purpose of this study was to assess the potential diagnostic impact of very high-resolution breast MRI scans with a newly designed, fitted coil array versus lower resolution scans with a standard commercially available array. Preliminary results show better depiction of lesion morphology with the high resolution, but because the cases were clearly BIRADS 5, there was no difference in the diagnosis between the two resolutions. A wider range of cases is necessary to assess the diagnostic benefits of high-resolution breast MRI and further studies are underway.
