PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to identify the role of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) in the classification of liver hydatid cysts (HCs) and their differentiation from simple cysts and liver abscesses. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-two patients that were sent to our department with preliminary diagnoses of HCs or abscess were included in the study. Thirty lesions were evaluated. MRI included T1-weighted fast gradient echo, T2-weighted half-Fourier acquisition… CONTINUE READING
