Fibrosis is the most characteristic histopathological feature of pancreatic carcinoma and chronic pancreatitis. It was shown that the IVIM-derived parameter D (true diffusion constant) did not show differences between these two entities. The aim of this study was to compare differences in D with the histopathological grade of fibrosis in pancreatic diseases.
