Abstract

Objective: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasonography (US) are commonly used in the pre-surgery determination of tumor size and the follow-up of breast cancer patients treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). The aim of this study was to compare the efficiency of preoperative MRI and US in tumor size evaluation of patients with breast cancer after NAC to guide clinicians on the appropriate treatment plan.
