Clinical Evaluation of a Calculated b Value Tool
Diffusion MRI is an established imaging modality for imaging workup of patients with breast cancer. In the current clinical practice, Radiologists are performing a qualitative evaluation of the signal intensities of malignant tissue on multiple b values (normal b0 and b1000). In several cases, image contrast on b1000 is not adequate to differentiate the exact extent of the lesion in relation to adjacent breast parenchyma.
Develop and clinically validate a software that can be used for accurate estimation of the actual extent of the lesion, as well as the relative changes before and after therapy.

Implications for Patient Care:
Improve diagnosis and accurate assessment of treatment response.
