The predictive accuracy of multiparametric MRI at T3 during neoadjuvant chemotherapy

The authors aim to examine the predictive value of parameters derived from diffusion-weighted imaging and contrast-enhanced-MRI at various time-points during neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer

Key points:
• Mid-therapy diameter changes are the best predictors of pCR in neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
• Volumetric measures are not strictly superior in therapy monitoring to lesion diameter.
• Size measures perform as a better predictor than ADC values
