To evaluate utility of quantitative measurements in MRI for the early prediction of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) effectiveness in cervical cancer, 13 patients with stage 1b-2b squamous cell carcinoma were assessed. They were performed NAC and radical hysterectomy. Tumor volume, diffusion, and perfusion parameters were correlated to the eventual tumor volume reduction rate after NAC was completed.
