Diagnostic value of ADC in patients with prostate cancer: influence of the choice of b values
European Radiology, 05/07/2012
Thormer G et al. – Absolute apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values strongly depend on the choice of b values and therefore should be used with caution for diagnostic purposes. A minimum b value greater than zero is recommended for ADC calculation to improve the visual assessment of prostate cancer (PCa) in ADC maps.
