While the sensitivity of breast MRI is high the specificity is somewhat lower. T2W sequences help to increase the specificity of breast MR. The aim of this work was to develop a 3D T2W fat nulled sequence. Additionally, by substituting the traditional CHESS fat nulling pulse with an IR technique improved fat nulling was anticipated.
