This study investigated the association of 3D MR-based breast density with apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) acquired from the fibroglandular tissue of the breast. MR images from the contralateral normal breast of 38 women diagnosed with unilateral breast cancer were retrospectively analyzed. The results from our study noted a positive correlation of ADC values with MR-measured percent breast density. This study proved that women with higher breast density had higher stromal matrix, which can be assessed using ADC.
