goal of this pilot study was to assess the ADC value in kidney of IVIM and DTI
in distinguishing diabetic subjects and healthy controls. In our study, cortical
ADC and D of patients with DN were significantly lower than those of healthy
controls. The reduction of D values in the cortex and medulla was more obvious than
ADC in patients. The results of this study suggested that
cortical D and ADC, quantified by kidney IVIM and DTI could be potential
imaging biomarkers for DN. IVIM could reflect the renal function more sensitive
and accurate in DN patients.
