1.Primary Outcome
Title Mean Total MRI Functional Tumor Volume (FTV) Change From Baseline to Month 3 (V3)
Hide Description Mean total MRI FTV change from baseline to month 3 (V3): For patients with more than one measureable lesion on the MRI, the sum over all measureable lesions on the MRI was calculated at each time point. V3 was calculated by subtracting the total MRI FTV measured (i.e. the sum over all lesions present with MRI FTV measurements) at 3 months from the total MRI FTV measured at baseline. For V3 the raw change in the volume will be calculated for each patient and a mean and 95% confidence interval will be constructed using two-sided t-tests.

Hide Description Mean total MRI FTV change from baseline to month 6 (V6): For patients with more than one measureable lesion on the MRI, the sum over all measureable lesions on the MRI was calculated at each time point. V6 was calculated by subtracting the total MRI FTV measured at 6 months from the total MRI FTV measured at baseline.

3.Secondary Outcome
Title Mean Total MRI Tumor Diameter Change From Baseline to Month 3
Hide Description To ascertain the change in maximum tumor diameter from baseline to 3 months (D3) the same methods as in Primary outcome #1 will be used but on diameter instead of volume. For patients with more than one lesion longest diameter measurement, the sum of all lesion longest diameter measurements was calculated.

Hide Description Rate of Mastectomy will be estimated as the number of mastectomies divided by the number of surgeries. A 95% confidence interval will be constructed using exact binomial methods. Rate of Lumpectomy will be estimated as the number of lumpectomies divided by the number of surgeries. A 95% confidence interval will be constructed using exact binomial methods.
