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.
