Differentiating mass-forming focal pancreatitis (FP) and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is of great importance and yet remains a challenge in clinical practice. In this work, we propose a novel method to address the challenge with a new parameter (inhomogeneity index) based on the ADC map analysis with different region of interest (ROI) size.
