Measurements of tumor apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), volume and diameter in assessing the response of patients with locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) (n = 56) undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) at four time periods (before treatment and after three cycles of NACT) were carried out at 1.5 T using diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and MRI. Ten benign tumors and 15 controls were also investigated. The MR tumor response was compared with the clinical response. Mean ADC before… CONTINUE READING
