AbstractThe microvascular contrast agent transfer constant K(trans) has shown prognostic value in cervical cancer patients treated with chemoradiotherapy. This study aims to determine whether this is explained by the contribution to K(trans) of plasma flow (Fp), vessel permeability surface-area product (PS), or a combination of both.
