We evaluate quantitative transport mapping (QTM) based on the inversion of transport equation without any arterial input function (AIF) for automatically postprocessing dynamic contrast enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) to differentiate malignant and benign breast tumors using biopsy pathology as reference and comparing with traditional Kety’s method and enhancement curve characteristics (ECC). Automated QTM velocity was found to be the most accurate, then ECC enhancement amplitude with manual ROI, and lastly Kety’s Ktrans with a manual AIF for differentiating malignant from benign breast tumor.
