Diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) is a promising non-invasive method for evaluating the expression of Ki-67, a marker of cellular proliferation in HCC, which may contribute to predict recurrence and prognosis preoperatively. In this study, we evaluated the potential role of DKI in preoperative prediction of Ki-67 expression in HCC. The results show that increased MK and decreased ADC values are potential predictive biomarkers for of Ki-67 expression of in HCC.
