Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) is offered to an increasing number of breast cancer (BC) patients, and comprehensive monitoring of treatment response is of utmost importance. Several imaging modalities are available to follow tumor response, although likely to provide different clinical information. We aimed to examine the association between early radiological response by three conventional imaging modalities and pathological complete response (pCR). Further, we investigated the agreement between these modalities pre-, during, and post-NACT, and the accuracy of predicting pathological residual tumor burden by these imaging modalities post-NACT.
