Breast multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (mp-MRI) is a well-established technique in breast cancer for tumor characterization, treatment strategies and post operative predicting, owing to its non-invasive nature of excellent soft-tissue contrast. Our preliminary work demonstrated that MK showed promise in characterizing breast lesions as well as predicting prognostic factors. However, due to the small samples in our previous research and few research relating to the correlation between MK and molecular subtypes, further study with larger cohort is needed to verify our initial results and explore more potential of MK in other clinical applications (assessing therapeutic response to MWA in BBLs).
