This study compares ADC values obtained by thin-slice RESOLVE (a readout segmented diffusion technique) to typical EPI diffusion imaging at 3T, as tested on suspicious breast MRI lesions prior to biopsy. We found that among malignant lesions, RESOLVE demonstrates lower mean ADC values, increasing separation between benign and malignant lesions.
