PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the feasibility of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) for monitoring early treatment response to chemoradiotherapy (CRT) of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one patients with stage III and IV NPC were enrolled in this study from February 2012 to November 2012.T2-weighted and DWI sequences with diffusion factor of 0 and 800mm²/s were performed using a 3.0 T Philips Achieva TX scanner at baseline and 3 days, 20 days… CONTINUE READING
