The age-related proportional changes may also have a
significant influence on ADCs in the helthy
pancreas.Ideally, multiple b values DWI with intravoxel
incoherent motion (IVIM) model should be set up for the
separate estimation of tissue perfusion and diffusivity.
Thus, the aim of the study was to identify potential
associations between the DWI-derived IVIM parameters
such as f (perfusion fraction), ADCfast
(pseudo-diffusion coefficient), ADCslow (the tissue
diffusivity) and these parameters with the commonly used
DWI-derived ADCs of normal pancreas and the age.
