To assess the efficacy of computed diffusion-weighted images (cDWIs) of b = 2000 s/mm2 (cDWI2000) generated from DWIs of b = 0 and 1000 for prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis in comparison with that of measured original DWIs of b = 1000 (mDWI1000) and b = 2000(mDWI2000) using 3-T MRI. Eighty patients who underwent a preoperative MRI examination, including T2WI and DWI (b = 0, 1000, 2000 s/mm2), were enrolled in this study. Four combinations of images, protocol A (T2WI alone), B (T2WI + mDWI1000… CONTINUE READING
