The primary aim of the study is to identify radiomic features as biomarkers of metastatic progression following primary therapy.
Condition or disease
Invasive Breast Cancer
The study aims to evaluate radiomic markers in breast tumors to evaluate metastatic risk based on radiomic features following primary therapy. The investigators aim to analyze images at various time intervals before, during and after primary treatments using two advanced imaging techniques (DCE-MRI & DWI-MRI).
