Value of intravoxel incoherent motion diffusion-weighted MR imaging in differentiating malignant from benign pulmonary lesions: a meta analysis

Abstract

Previous studies have indicated that intravoxel incoherent motion model (IVIM)of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) shows great potential to differentiate malignant from benign lung lesions using various parameters such as pure diffusion coefficient (D), pseudo-diffusion coefficient (D*) and perfusion fraction (f). However, these studies showed inconsistent… (More)
