This study compares the artifacts in fat suppressed breast MRI caused by biopsy markers from three different techniques: dual echo Dixon, conventional or Quick FatSat (QFS) and SPectrally selective Adiabatic Inversion Recovery (SPAIR) at 3T. The metal artifact caused by biopsy markers appear as a void in Dixon images versus interleaved bright and dark rings in QFS and SPAIR images. SPAIR fat suppression has the largest volume of artifacts due to biopsy markers.
