Primary systemic therapy (PST), also called as neoadjuvant therapy has a substantial role in the treatment of patients with breast cancer. There is an increasing need among clinicians for the monitoring of therapeutic effectiveness. Beyond simple physical examination, diagnostic imaging tools have the most important role in the measurement of the therapeutic response. Selecting the appropriate imaging method is crucial for the correct evaluation of the therapeutic response and for planning further therapy. In this paper we review breast imaging modalities currently available in Hungary and detail the efficiency of these modalities in the evaluation of the therapeutic response.
