PURPOSE To evaluate the usefulness of perfusion parameters derived from dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging (DCE-MRI) for assessing the therapeutic response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy (CRT) for locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty patients with LARC (≥T3 or lymph-node metastasis) who underwent CRT and subsequent surgery, were included in this study. All patients underwent pre- and post-CRT DCE-MRI on a 1.5 Tesla unit. By using a postprocessing… CONTINUE READING
