The aim of this study was to adapt the human magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences for use in the routine examination of canine mammary glands. MRI was performed on 10, middle- to old-aged dogs of different breeds. It was found that T1- and T2-weighted spin echo, short T1 inversion recovery sequences and a gradient echo (GE) dynamic T1-weighted measurement made in the coronal and transversal planes were the most informative MR diagnostic methods for imaging canine mammary tumours. The static MR technique is the most detailed imaging modality for differentiating the tissue types in the substance of the mammary gland. The MRI findings were in close relationship with the histological result (five malignant mixed tumours and five cases of invasive ductal carcinoma). Using the GE dynamic contrast-enhanced sequence the morphological patterns as well as the kinetic parameters proved to be malignant. By the dynamic measurement technique initial information was obtained on the contrast enhancing properties, which are valuable factors during in vivo staging and in the prognostic work.
