OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to observe the relation between signal intensity (SI) on MR images with a high b value and the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of bone marrow on body diffusion-weighted MR images, to determine cutoff values that enable separation of malignant and normal bone marrow, and to identify the upper ADC values of untreated multiple myeloma lesions and bone metastatic lesions of breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective evaluations of 16 patients… CONTINUE READING
