Changes in blood flow and metabolism in locally advanced breast cancer treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
UNLABELLED: Locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) is commonly treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by definitive surgery. The factors influencing the response of LABC to presurgical chemotherapy are incompletely understood. To characterize in vivo tumor biology in patients with LABC, we performed serial measurements of blood flow and glucose metabolism in LABC patients over the course of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and compared measurements with response. METHODS: Thirty-five patients...Expand abstract
