acquire more detailed information on perfusion and diffusion in breast cancer,
we analyzed three diffusion components using triexponential function.
diffusion (Dp), fast free
diffusion (Df), and slow
restricted diffusion coefficients (Ds)
were calculated from triexponential function. We compared these parameters between
invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) groups.
significantly lower in the IDC group than those in the DCIS group because
of difference in the cellularity.
analysis makes it possible to noninvasively obtain more detailed information on
perfusion and diffusion in breast cancer, thereby assisting in the diagnosis.
