To investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in thyroid for differentiating benign and malignant thyroid nodules, determining the best b-value of DWI sequence for the diagnosis thyroid nodules.This study revealed that the ADC measurements in DWI is useful for quantitatively differentiating benign and malignant thyroid nodules, and should be potential for the assessment of thyroid nodules in addition to conventional MRI protocol.
