Quantitative perfusion- and diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging of gastrointestinal cancers treated with multikinase inhibitors: A pilot study

Academic Article


  • Background: Dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) are often used to detect the early response of solid tumors to an effective therapy. The early changes in intratumoral physiological parameters measured by DCE-MRI/DWI have been evaluated as surrogate biomarkers allowing a tailored treatment for the individual patient.
