Prediction of Early Response to Chemotherapy in Lung Cancer by Using Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging
Graphs in 54-year-old man with squamous cell carcinoma lung cancer belong to partial response group. (a, c) T2-weighted with fat suppression images and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps (b, d) obtained before (a, b) and after the first cycle (c, d) of chemotherapy. From the T2-weighted with fat suppression images, no significant decrease in tumor size was detected (a, c) after the first cycle of chemotherapy, while the ADC value increased from mm2/s to mm2/s (b, d).
