Example of diffusion weighted breast imaging (DWI-MRM) using image fusion techniques: Upper image: T2-weighted MR-image of a female breast with a suspicious lesion found on x-ray mammography (black arrow). Middle: Image fusion of T2w- and diffusion weighted (DWI) images without a suspicious appearance of the lesion. Lower image: Diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) without a suspicious lesion. Histopathology: Benign fibroadenoma.

The research group Breast Imaging develops and evaluates new imaging approaches in order to improve the early detection and reliable characterization of suspicious breast lesions and the staging and monitoring in patients with breast cancer. Full text available in german (
