Liver ADC and relative ADC (normalized by spleen ADC) were calculated in 19 patients who underwent liver biopsy or transplantation. ADC was calculated using breath hold DWI with b-values of 0-50-500 sec/mm2. Relative ADC was superior to absolute liver ADC for the distinction between cirrhotic and non-cirrhotic livers.
