Several subtypes of breast cancer and gynecological cancers have been identified. Tailored therapies have been developed to treat the more aggressive subtypes of these cancers. It is important to understand the role of MRI in assessing response to these tailored treatment regimens.

Target Audience
Attendees who are interested in breast and gynecological malignancies will benefit from this course. In addition, attendees interested in differentiating inflammatory changes from treatment versus tumors that are unresponsive to this targeted chemotherapy should attend this course.

Educational Objectives
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

-Understand the increasingly important role of neoadjuvant therapy in certain subtypes of breast and gynecological cancers;
-Understand the role of anti-hormonal agents in breast and gynecological malignancies; and
-Assess the role of MRI in the management of response to different therapies.

The results of diagnostic imaging tests frequently change treatment strategies and impact our understanding of disease processes. Functional imaging (i.e. DCE-MRI, BOLD, DW-MRI and PET/MRI) has significantly evolved during the last decade and has now become an important tool in evaluation of patients with gynecological malignancies. It has an added value in assessment of treatment response and treatment follow-up of malignant gynecologic conditions as it provides physiologic and metabolic information in addition to anatomical detail.
