The present study for the first time demonstrated that
entropy of T2-weighted imaging as well as apparent
diffusion coefficient (ADC) of leiomyomas before uterine
artery embolization (UAE) has predictive value for
leiomyoma volume reduction 6 months after embolization.
A combination of entropy and ADC may help interventional
radiologists with patient selection, preoperative
planning and evaluation.
