The morphologic and kinetic information of a breast lesion can be quantified using pharmacokinetic models enabled by DCE MRI, which often has lengthy protocol. Abbreviated breast MRI is being explored, both for simplicity and reduced scan time, and the same principles may apply to dynamic breast imaging. In this work, we compare the fitting and parameter diagnostic performances for two pharmacokinetic models using full and abbreviated protocols.
