The differential diagnosis of benign and malignant
focal lesions of the lung is a hot and difficult problem in daily chest
imaging. The purpose of our study was to
evaluate the potential of intravoxel
incoherent motion (IVIM)–derived parameters as well as apparent diffusion
coefficient (ADC) in differentiating solitary pulmonary lesions. The results demonstrate that IVIM-DWI
could be more helpful for distinguishing malignant from benign lesions in lung.
D has the best diagnostic efficiency.
