Contrast-enhanced MRI can only distinguish to a limited extent between malignant and benign focal renal lesions. The aim of this meta-analysis is to review renal diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) to compare apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values for different renal lesions that can be applied in clinical practice. A PubMed search was performed to identify relevant articles published 2004–2011 on renal DWI of focal renal lesions. ADC values were extracted by lesion type to determine whether… CONTINUE READING
