Non-mass enhancing (NME) breast tumors are a diagnostic challenge and limited data exists for characterization with DWI with ADC mapping. We aim to investigate the influence of ROI placement and different ADC metrics on diagnostic accuracy of DWI and to assess intra and inter-reader agreement of ADC measurements with DWI in NME breast lesions. Two readers independently assessed DWI using three different ROI┬┤s approaches for ADC measurements. Data indicate that diagnostic accuracy of DWI with ADC mapping is limited in lesions presenting as NME on DCE-MRI with only moderate inter-reader agreement
