OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to review the use of gadobenate dimeglumine, a high-relaxivity gadolinium-based contrast material, for breast MRI. CONCLUSION. Thanks to its high relaxivity, gadobenate dimeglumine offers valuable advantages in terms of lesion conspicuity, detection rate, and sensitivity for malignant breast lesions. However, a higher enhancement of benign lesions should be taken into account to avoid reduced specificity.
