Automated Analysis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Breast

Albert Gubern defends his PhD thesis “Automated Analysis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Breast”

Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (DCE-MRI) of the breast is employed for breast cancer screening in women with cumulative lifetime breast cancer risk of more than 20-25% (US and EU guideline). Other indications include, but are not limited to, preoperative staging, evaluation of women treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and problem solving in case of inconclusive findings from other modalities. Compared to mammography, which is the image modality commonly used in regular screening, breast DCE-MRI presents higher sensitivity, especially in women with dense breasts. However, the analysis of breast MRI requires interpretation of four-dimensional DCE data, as well as correlation to…
