Diffusion fractional anisotropy and ADC were compared between tumors, peritumoral edema, and fibroglandular tissue in triple negative breast cancer. Fractional anisotropy in the peritumoral edema of triple negative breast cancer did not correlate strongly with ADC and may offer additional characterization of peritumoral edema.
