Diffusion-weighted imaging vs STIR turbo SE imaging: capability for quantitative differentiation of small-cell lung cancer from non-small-cell lung cancer.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To compare the capability of differentiation of small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) from non-SCLC (NSCLC) between diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and short tau inversion recovery (STIR) turbo spin-echo imaging. METHODS The institutional review board of Kobe University Hospital, Kobe, Japan, approved this study, and written informed consent was… (More)
