PURPOSE Clinical evaluation of tumor size in cervical cancer is often difficult, and clinical signs of radiation therapy failure may not be present until well after completion of treatment. The purpose of this study is to investigate early indicators of treatment response using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for quantitative assessment of tumor volume and tumor regression rate before, during, and after radiation therapy.
