In the I-SPY2 breast cancer trial, functional tumor volume (FTV) derived from dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI is used as a longitudinal measure of response to adjust patient randomization and evaluate drug efficacy. I-SPY2 is introducing a treatment “escalation” option, giving patients the opportunity to re-direct to potentially more effective treatment based on early indication of inferior response by MRI. We retrospectively investigated the ability of FTV reduction to predict inferior outcome. Combined criteria using FTV reduction at 3 and 6 weeks of treatment showed high PPV and high sensitivity in early detection of non-responders.
