In order to gain acceptance of DWI in the clinical setting, consistent high image quality with minimal breast distortion is required. Although time of acquisition is slightly longer for the RESOLVE compared with the advanced diffusion sequence, the benefits of improved image quality, particularly with respect to image distortion and phase ghosting are preferred by clinical breast imaging radiologists based on this reader study. The theoretical benefits of using readout-segmented diffusion imaging technique in RESOLVE to improve image quality can be realized in a routine clinical practice.
