In our prospective study, We compared DKI and DWI related parameters in order to investigate the diagnostic capability of DKI in distinguishing cervical lymphoma from nasopharyngeal carcinoma(NPC) metastases. The ROC curve showed that K value of DKI had no significantly diagnostic capability, whlie D value of DKI had a better diagnostic performance than the ADC value of DWI in distinguishing the cervical lymphoma from the NPC metastases. Therefore, DKI may be a better noninvasive imaging biomarker for distinguishing the lymphoma and NPC metastases involving the head and neck.
