We explored the feasibility of using high dielectric constant materials to potentially further enhance signal-noise-ratio (SNR) in breast MRI. Through computer modelling at 3 Tesla (T), we showed that there can be great benefits of increasing sensitivity and specificity of breast MRI. As a side effect of using high dielectric constant materials, the RF safety can be improved by the largely increased transmit efficiency.
