An accurate preoperative prediction of axillary lymph node (ALN) metastasis is essential in clinic treatment. Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) and diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) have been reported as effective non-invasive imaging methods in reflecting internal complexity of tumors. Few studies have used DKI combined with IVIM in diagnosing ALN metastasis of breast cancer. Therefore, in this study we aimed to explore if IVIM and/or DKI was useful in evaluating the ALN metastasis.
