Kaiser scoring (KS) system for breast magnetic resonance imaging (bMRI) is a new clinical decision-making tool for the diagnosis of breast lesions. This study proposed and investigated the feasibility of Kaiser score combined with breast vascular assessment, defined as KS* , for its diagnostic performance in breast magnetic resonance imaging (bMRI). The results showed that the additional used ipsilateral breast vascularity and positive adjacent vessel sign (AVS) can accurately evaluate breast lesions, and KS* has higher diagnostic efficiency for breast lesions than conventional KS, especially for non-mass lesions.
