Significant changes of tumor properties during and after neoadjuvant radiochemo therapy are observed in DCE- as well as in DWI-MRI. However heterogneiity of the patient cohort impede more clear results. To overcome this an increase in patient numbers may allow to gain significant results for sharper definied sub groups. This will include combining single results of DCE- and DWI.MRI data in a more integral approach to increase the predictive value.
