Among the various causes of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is the most common one in Asian countries including China. We assessed the correlation of ADC and IVIM parameters with the histological differentiation of HBV-related HCCs. Our results showed that ADC, D and f coefficients are significantly correlated with histological differentiation of HBV-related HCC. According to ROC analysis, ADC, D and f were useful parameters for the evaluation of histological differentiation of HCCs. ADC showed better diagnostic performance compared with D and f IVIM is a promising tool for predicting histological differentiation of HBV-related HCC.
