BACKGROUND/AIMS We retrospectively evaluated the usefulness of the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measured from high-b value diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) of magnetic resonance imaging for the differential diagnosis of gallbladder lesions among patients with cancer, adenoma and inflammatory disease. METHODOLOGY Forty patients with gallbladder lesions (22 patients with cancer, 7 patients with adenoma, and 11 patients with inflammatory disease) were enrolled in this study. All patients… CONTINUE READING
