Could early tumour volume changes assessed on morphological MRI predict the response to chemoradiation therapy in locally-advanced rectal cancer?

AIM To investigate the potential role of an additional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination performed during neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy (CRT) in the prediction of pathological response in locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC). MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-eight consecutive patients with LARC underwent neoadjuvant CRT. MRI studies at 1.5 T… (More)
