BACKGROUND Conventional MRI is limited in the assessment of nodal status and T status after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy. Multiparametric MRI strives to overcome these issues by directly measuring the local microcirculation and cellular environment, thus possibly allowing for a more reliable evaluation of response to therapy. OBJECTIVE We assessed the available literature for the value of multiparametric MRI sequences (diffusion-weighted and dynamic contrast-enhanced imaging) in determining… CONTINUE READING
