The increased clinical understanding of neovascularization and its changes during therapy are the basis for therapy-response monitoring with MR mammography of breast cancer treatment. With dynamic MR imaging, objective quantification of neovascularization can be achieved using pharmacokinetic analysis of contrast media enhancement. This technique likely will be of major clinical importance for the noninvasive evaluation of neoadjuvant therapy with a favorable cost-benefit ratio.
