Contrast-enhanced breast MRI is a powerful tool for breast cancer detection, but can be limited in the setting of marked background parenchymal enhancement (BPE), which can mask underlying lesions. We found that among patients with marked BPE, positive predictive value (PPV2) and cancer detection rate (CDR) were statistically significantly increased when the high spatial/high temporal resolution protocol, rather than the standard protocol, was used. The interval cancer rate was not significantly different between these groups.
