Answer

Answer

Numerous breast MRI protocols have been published, and the inexperienced reader can easily be confused as to which to follow. All of the published techniques are similar in the detection of breast malignancy. Therefore, it is more important for a radiologist to be comfortable and familiar with a specific protocol to ensure a high level of diagnostic accuracy than to try to always update to the latest sequence or technique.
