DCE-MRI has an established role as both a diagnostic and research tool. This work presents a novel DCE-MRI test object of simple and affordable design, which can create reproducible dynamic enhancement curves employing commonly available automated contrast agent injectors. A reproducible reference dynamic enhancement curve is a valuable tool in routine QA and can be employed to investigate the effect of MR sequence alterations on curve shape.
