The advent of functional MR imaging has facilitated an increased role for imaging in risk stratification and treatment planning. In this study, DTI and DWI MR measurements were performed to investigate the correlation of the FA and ADC values in ROIs of the intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and in further the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of the parameters for the diagnosis. DTI working at present scanning hardware are more capable to detect the pathophysiological changes unattainable compare to conventional MRI techniques.
