To improve the ability to differentially diagnose malignant liver tumors, quantitative apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) and T2 values were evaluated in 117 patients. We also included 59 patients with liver metastases (LMs) from different primary cancers. The results showed combining quantitative ADC and T2 values could make the differential diagnosis of various malignant liver tumors easier. However, this quantitative combination was not effective at improving the ability to diagnose patients with LMs.
