MR images and pathological findings of a case with iCR but non-pCR. a, d MR images of a luminal type breast cancer before (a) and after (d) NAC. After NAC, tumor was no longer enhanced, yielding an iCR. cf Histological findings of the pathological specimens before (c, d) and after (e, f) NAC. Hematoxylin and eosin staining at low (×40, c, e) and high (×100, d, f) magnification. Cancer cells before NAC showed low nuclear grade. Pathology of the surgical specimen showed scattered small invasive nests of residual cancer cells in the tumor bed. Histological therapeutic effect was estimated as a “slight response”
