MR/scintimammography (MR/SMM) is a promising high sensitivity and high specificity dual-modality imaging system for the diagnosis of breast cancer. We present a new unilateral breast specific coil and a novel dual-modality interface configuration for MR/scintimammography. The new two channel unilateral coil consisted of a quadrature solenoid coil and a quadrature saddle coil. These two channel coils are specifically designed not only to obtain high sensitivity breast MR imaging, but also to allow simultaneous MR/SMM imaging. The performance of this new system configuration is compared to a commercial breast coil.
