Le et al1recently found that apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) calculated from 2 key b values (“shifted ADC”, or sADC) can be directly and quantitatively represent healthy liver stiffness and be compared with results obtained by standard MR elastography (MRE). In this study, we found that there is a strong linear relationship between sADC and stiffness in both liver and pancreas, and a weak relationship in spleen, but no coherence in kidney in healthy volunteers.
