OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the utility of diffusion-weighted and quantitative chemical-shift magnetic resonance imaging in the differentiation of adrenal adenomas and metastases. METHODS One hundred eight patients (45 men and 63 women; mean age, 57 years) with 126 adrenal masses were prospectively evaluated by magnetic resonance imaging in this study. Signal intensity and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurements were performed on axial in- and opposed-phase T1… CONTINUE READING
