Diffusion-weighted imaging reflects pathological therapeutic response and relapse in breast cancer.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Conventional imaging does not always accurately depict the pathological response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) may provide additional insight into the chemotherapeutic effect. This study assessed whether the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) correlated with pathological outcome and prognosis in breast… (More)
