OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the histological grade of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) can be predicted using the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC). MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study group consisted of 80 patients with 85 surgically resected HCCs who underwent preoperative MRI exams including diffusion-weighted imaging. The tumors were… CONTINUE READING
