The purpose of this study was to develop and optimize a rapid MR pancreas and ovarian screening protocol to be performed in conjunction with breast MRI screening in BRCA mutation carriers. Images were acquired with the patient in the prone position, with the breast coil still in place, but using the built-in body coil on a 3T magnet, and evaluated for image quality and detection of lesions. 30 women had research MR for pancreatic screening and 5 of them also underwent for rapid ovarian MR screening which provided diagnostic quality images within a short time of acquisition.
