Apparent diffusion coefficient of diffusion weighted MRI in endometrial carcinoma--Relationship with local invasiveness
European Journal of Radiology, 08/10/2012
Cao K et al. – Mean ADC value was lower in endometrial carcinoma was lower than the normal uterus. Quartile apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), representing the intra–tumor heterogeneity of water movement, had a profound relationship with invasiveness of endometrial carcinomas, while mean ADC value did not. ADC values may serve as a quantitative indicator to complement routine sequences.
