Dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI is the key series to analyze for the detection of breast cancer in women with extremely dense breasts. Given the increasing number of women receiving dense breast MRI screening we aimed to reduce radiologist workload without reducing the high sensitivity of MRI. We developed a convolutional neural network (CNN) based method able to defer 8.1% of the workload by identifying non-enhancing scans with a sensitivity of 96.3%.
