We present a 3D T1-Weighted radial trajectory suited to work with IDEAL fat/water separation. Some relevant characteristics are: rapid acquisition, reliable fat suppression, and high resolution despite significant data undersampling. The method is demonstrated in 3T bilateral breast MR imaging where isotropic resolution of 0.8 mm is achieved. In addition, we show the value of high count channel array for breast imaging.
