This study aimed to examine the performance of DWI in diagnosing pCR before surgery. Kinetic analysis from standard DCE-MRI were analyzed for comparison. ROC analysis for diagnosing pCR based on DWI score/Kinetic score by two readers was performed. Kinetic score showed slightly higher AUC while 95% confidence interval overlapped with that of DWI score. Both kinetic score and DWI score demonstrated excellent diagnostic performance among triple negative subtype compared to other subtypes.
