Chemical shift encoded MRI (CSE-MRI) utilizes the water-fat signal model method, and its corresponding T2*mapping has less artifacts from water-fat shift. We extracted the fat-influence-free T2* to investigate the correlation between T2 * mapping and histological grading of breast invasive ductal carcinoma, and found T2 * value for IDC-3 significantly higher than in IDC-2. This finds may provide more understanding of invasive ductal carcinoma microstructure and metabolism.
