Fourteen male and eight female patients in their thirties and forties were studied in a resting state. Data from FDG-PET were processed with an anatomic standardization(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether histogram analysis in diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can help differentiate pancreatic adenocarcinomas from neuroendocrine tumors.Sixty-four patients with histologically confirmed 53 pancreatic adenocarcinomas or 19 neuroendocrine tumors underwent DW MRI. We evaluated the pixel(More)
