A Potential Risk of Overestimating Apparent Diffusion Coefficient in Parotid Glands

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To investigate transient signal loss on diffusion weighted images (DWI) and overestimation of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in parotid glands using single shot echoplanar DWI (EPDWI). MATERIALS AND METHODS This study enrolled 6 healthy subjects and 7 patients receiving radiotherapy. All participants received dynamic EPDWI with a total of… (More)
