RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to quantify, using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging, the microscopic rate of water diffusion in pure germinoma and to determine whether or not the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values correlated with the different histologic components. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of echoplanar diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance images was conducted on 10 patients with 11 germinoma lesions. All images were obtained… CONTINUE READING
