Diffusion-weighted imaging: determination of the best pair of b-values to discriminate breast lesions.

OBJECTIVE In breast diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) is used to discriminate between malignant and benign lesions. As ADC estimates can be affected by the weighting factors, our goal was to determine the optimal pair of b-values for discriminating breast lesions at 3.0 T. METHODS 152 females with 157 lesions (89… (More)
