The purpose of this study is to assess if Six-Dimensional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (6D-MRI) is effective in predicting outcomes in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC).


The overarching goal of this pilot study is to evaluate the usefulness of a novel Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) approach, which measure properties of tumor microenvironment (i.e. vascularity, fibrosis), to predict PDAC response to neoadjuvant therapy (NAT).
