On the relationship between the apparent diffusion coefficient and extravascular extracellular volume fraction in human breast cancer.

Abstract

MRI techniques have been developed that can noninvasively probe the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of water via diffusion-weighted MRI (DW-MRI). These methods have found much application in cancer where it is often found that the ADC within tumors is inversely correlated with tumor cell density, so that an increase in ADC in response to therapy can be… (More)
