RATIONAL AND OBJECTIVES Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) represents the most common type of aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL); follicular lymphoma (FL) is the most frequent indolent NHL. The aim of this study was to investigate whether texture-based analysis of conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows discrimination of DLBCL from FL, and further, to correlate the MRI texture features with diffusion-weighted imaging apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value and tumor tissue… CONTINUE READING
