- •Soft-tissue sarcomas may not shrink in response to chemotherapy despite adequate treatment.
- •Decreased attenuation or contrast enhancement more accurately predicts sarcoma treatment response.
- •Quantitative MRI of sarcomas can estimate necrosis and viable tumor volume to assess treatment response.
