DCE MRI is a well-accepted tool in the management of breast cancer, but continues to face technical challenges and concerns regarding gadolinium deposition. In this work, we proposed a novel Multitasking DCE technique, which enables adequate breast coverage, 0.9-mm isotropic spatial resolution, 1.5-s temporal resolution, dynamic T1 mapping throughout all DCE phases, and reduced dose of 0.02mmol/kg for the imaging of breast cancer. The in vivo studies demonstrated that the low-dose Multitasking DCE showed equivalent tumor delineation compared to standard DCE. The quantitative DCE parameters were repeatable in vivo and significantly different between normal breast and breast cancer.
