In this study role of hemodynamic parameters (breast-blood-volume and breast blood-flow), obtained using T1-perfusion MRI data of breast, in the differentiation of benign from malignant breast lesions and classification of malignant lesions into different grades is evaluated. Hemodynamic parameters were also compared with the tracer kinetic parameters and semi-quantitative T1-perfusion analysis in term of grading. The high sensitivity and specificity of breast-blood-volume in differentiating between benign and malignant as well as in the grading of breast lesions (grade-I, grade-II and grade-III) were observed.
