PURPOSE To retrospectively compare diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with standard breath-hold T2-weighted MR imaging for focal liver lesion (FLL) detection and characterization, by using consensus evaluation and other findings as the reference standard. MATERIALS AND METHODS Approval for this retrospective HIPAA-compliant study was obtained from the institutional review board; informed consent was waived. Fifty-three consecutive patients (30 men, 23 women; mean age, 60… CONTINUE READING
