This study is to access the
differential value in Pancreatic Carcinoma (PC) and Mass-Forming focal
Pancreatitis (FP) with qualitative and quantitative analysis of DCE-MRI and DWI.
Pancreatic TIC types and sub-types from DCE-MRI and ADC value and
tumor-to-pancreas contrast ratio of ADC value from DWI were compared between PC
and FP. We
found significant differences in TIC and ADC value and ADC tumor-to-pancreas contrast ratio between PC and FP. DCE-MRI and DWI were discovered to provide reliable information
for differentiating PC from FP, while the combination of them can achieve a
higher sensitivity and specificity.
