Synopsis: Strong T1-weighted, high resolution dynamic contrast enhance MR images are key in the detection of breast cancer. Combined with phospholipid detection using 31P Chemical Shift Imaging (CSI), the earlier alterations in metabolism can be obtained using a novel decoupling loop a bilateral breast coil was designed for uncompromised 1H and 31P MR(S)I at 7 tesla enabling increased spatial and temporal resolution with the 26 1H receiver channels integrated in the coil. We demonstrate high spatial and temporal resolution imaging and 31P CSI in patients with breast cancer.
