Enhancement curves breast MRI
- Type I a kinetic behaviour with a persistent uptake is considered a sign of benignity. Curves extracted from benign lesions are often in this class.
- Type II a kinetic behaviour with a clear plateau phase can be found both in benign and in malignant features. The classification of Type II curves is thus unknown.
- Type III a kinetic behaviour with a strong uptake followed by a rapid washout is considered a sign of malignancy. Type III are, in fact, often found in malignant lesions.
