Liver Metastases From Colorectal Cancer Treated With Conventional and Antiangiogenetic Chemotherapy

Liver Metastases From Colorectal Cancer Treated With Conventional and Antiangiogenetic Chemotherapy

6 novembre 2014

The objectives of the study were to determine whether perfusion computed tomography (CT-p) and magnetic resonance diffusion-
weighted imaging (MR-DWI) can allow evaluation of the effects of chemotherapy combined with antiangiogenetic treatment on liver metastases in patients with advanced colorectal cancer and to determine if changes in CT-p and MR-DWI correlate with the response to therapy as assessed by conventional Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST).
