In this retrospective study, an abbreviated protocol consisting of pre-contrast T1 and first post-contrast T1 sequences with fat saturation had near perfect detection of index and secondary cancers, as well as suspicious axillary and internal mammary lymph nodes, in women with newly diagnosed breast cancer. In conjunction with clinical histories and prior imaging examinations, an abbreviated breast MRI protocol is adequate for ipsilateral extent of disease and contralateral breast screening in newly diagnosed breast cancer.
