OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to evaluate the utility of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values for characterizing adrenal lesions and determine if diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) can distinguish lipid-rich from lipid-poor adenomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated 160 adrenal lesions in 156 patients (96 women and 60 men; mean age, 63 years). ADCs and signal intensity (SI) decrease on chemical shift imaging were measured in adrenal lesions with a wide variety… CONTINUE READING
