21 women with locally advanced breast cancer underwent
DCE-MRI scans before, after the first cycle of, at the
midpoint of, and after completion of neoadjuvant
chemotherapy. Quantitative DCE-MRI parameters of Ktrans,
kep, and Tau_i were found to be superior to tumor size
measurement for early prediction of pathologic response.
DCE-MRI parameters were as good as tumor size, if not
better, in evaluation of residual disease burden after
