Differential diagnosis of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatic cancer (PCa) now mainly depends on the results of the pathology. Both amide proton transfer-weighted (APTw) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) are promising non-invasive methods to classify BPH and PCa. In this study, we explore the correlation between the APT values and ADC derived from DWI in BPH and PCa. The results indicate the APT values showa moderate negative correlation with ADC, which confirms both methods are effective in the differential diagnosis of BPH and PCa.
