Abstract The aim of this study was to explore whether intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) can probe pre-treatment differences or monitor early response in patients with locally advanced breast cancer receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). Thirty-six patients with locally advanced breast cancer were imaged using multiple-b DWI with 12 b values ranging from 0 to 1000 s/mm(2) at the baseline, and 28 patients were repeatedly scanned after the second cycle of NAC. Subjects were divided into pathologic complete response (pCR) and nonpathologic complete response (non-pCR) groups according to the surgical pathologic specimen. Parameters (D, D*, f, maximum diameter [MD] and volume [V]) before and after 2 cycles of NAC and their corresponding change (Δparameter) between pCR and non-pCR groups were compared using the Student t test or nonparametric test. The diagnostic performance of different parameters was judged by the receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis. Before NAC, the f value of pCR group was significantly higher than that of non-pCR (32.40\% vs 24.40\%, P = 0.048). At the end of the second cycle of NAC, the D value was significantly higher and the f value was significantly lower in pCR than that in non-pCR (P = 0.001; P = 0.015, respectively), whereas the D* value and V of the pCR group was slightly lower than that of the non-pCR group (P = 0.507; P = 0.676, respectively). ΔD was higher in pCR (-0.45 × 10(-3) mm(2)/s) than that in non-pCR (-0.07 × 10(-3) mm(2)/s) after 2 cycles of NAC (P < 0.001). Δf value in the pCR group was significantly higher than that in the non-pCR group (17.30\% vs 5.30\%, P = 0.001). There was no significant difference in ΔD* between the pCR and non-pCR group (P = 0.456). The prediction performance of ΔD value was the highest (AUC [area under the curve] = 0.924, 95\% CI [95\% confidence interval] = 0.759-0.990). When the optimal cut-off was set at -0.163 × 10(-3) mm(2)/s, the values for sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) were up to 100\% (95\% CI = 66.4-100), 73.7\% (95\% CI = 48.8-90.9), 64.3\% (95\% CI = 35.6-86.0), and 100\% (95\% CI = 73.2-99.3), respectively. IVIM-derived parameters, especially the D and f value, showed potential value in the pre-treatment prediction and early response monitoring to NAC in locally advanced breast cancer. ΔD value had the best prediction performance for pathologic response after NAC. This article was published in Medicine (Baltimore) and referenced in Journal of Integrative Oncology
