The feasibility of detecting axillary lymph node (LN) metastases with diffusion-weighted MR imaging was retrospectively evaluated. The relative ADC (with b values of 0 and 1000 s/mm(2)) between LNs in each axillary space was calculated (n=75). The area, the long and short diameter of the metastatic LNs were compared to those of non-metastatic LNs. The… CONTINUE READING
