abstract

  • • Volumetry on post-treatment DCE-/DW-MRI sequences correlated well with histopathological tumour regression. • DCE-MRI volumetry demonstrated good inter-reader agreement. • Inter-reader agreement was higher for DCE-MRI volumetry than for DW-MRI volumetry. • DCE-MRI volumetry merits further investigation as a metric for evaluating treatment response.
