The efficacy of empirical parameter map based texture
analysis as a method of predicting tumour response prior
to neo-adjuvant chemotherapy is explored in a cohort of
breast cancer patients with locally advanced disease.
Analysis of washout slope maps revealed significant
differences for 12 out of 16 textural parameters.
Subsequent decision tree analysis utilised 5 parameters
(f2, f3, f5, f11 and f16) obtaining a classification
accuracy of 82%.
