PURPOSE To establish the utility of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) entropy in discrimination of benign and malignant adnexal lesions, using histopathology as the reference standard, via comparison of the diagnostic performance of ADC entropy with mean ADC and with visual assessments of adnexal lesions on conventional and diffusion-weighted sequences. MATERIALS AND METHODS In all, 37 adult female patients with an ovarian mass that was resected between June 2006 and January 2011 were… CONTINUE READING
