Mesothelioma has rarely been the subject of DCE-MRI investigations. This study applies pharmacokinetic modeling to DCE-MRI data acquired in patients with mesothelioma tumours to generate parameters associated with tumour perfusion (e.g. K trans , v p ). Results from examinations before and after chemotherapy are reported in this abstract. Initial findings indicate that changes in K trans may correlate well with the response to treatment as evaluated by standard CT RECIST measures. Further patient numbers are needed to confirm these early impressions.
