Abstract

In a breast imaging method, magnetic resonance data are acquired of one or both breasts of a subject (16) using a breast coil (20, 20′) coupled with said one or both breasts. The acquiring employs at least four independent channels (41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46; 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66) per breast. The acquired magnetic resonance data are processed to generate at least one of (i) an image, (ii) a spectrum, and (iii) elasticity data. The at least four independent channels per breast are suitably embodied as a dual breast coil (20) including left breast conductors (31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36) defining at least four independent left breast acquisition channels (41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46) and right breast conductors (51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56) defining at least four independent right breast acquisition channels (61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66).
