BACKGROUND Despite its high response rate, the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy remains controversial. Pretherapeutic identification of subgroups of patients who are likely to respond to chemotherapy is of the utmost importance. PURPOSE In this study, we have attempted to determine the relationship between specific radiological parameters and the response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. In addition, we have determined if these parameters could yield prognostic information on recurrence and/or… CONTINUE READING
