This study measured the quantitative imaging metrics of the pancreas using DWI, IVIM, and 3D mdixon-quant sequences in healthy subjects and correlated these quantitative metrics with age, gender and BMI. This study showed that there were noticeable differences in sADC, f between genders (p<0.05). It shows that pancreatic cells of male are closely arranged, cell gap is reduced, and water diffusion is limited and pancreatic perfusion reduce´╝îwhich may be because pancreatic fat content of male overweigh that of female(5.16% vs.3.68%).
