This study is designed to investigate whether ADC values of lipid-containing small HCC with different pathological grading are the same as well as the correlation of ADC values with the pathological differentiate degree. There was significant
difference between low-grade group and moderate-grade group, as well as between
low-grade group and high-grade group (P
<0.05), and there was obviously significant difference between moderate-grade and
high-grade group (p <0.05).
Meanwhile, there was moderately positive correlation between ADC value and
pathological grading of lipid-containing small HCC (P=0.002, r=0.419) and the
coefficient of association was 0.95. This study demonstrated ADC value can
distinguish different pathological grading of lipid-containing small HCC, and
there is moderately positive correlation between them.
