PURPOSE Diffuse optical spectroscopy (DOS) has the potential to enable monitoring of tumor response during chemotherapy, particularly in the early stages of treatment. This study aims to assess feasibility of DOS for monitoring treatment response in HER2-negative breast cancer patients receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) and compare DOS with tumor response assessment by MRI. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Patients received NAC in six cycles of 3 weeks. In addition to standard treatment monitoring… CONTINUE READING
