It is difficult to differentiate the solidpseudopapillary tumer of the pancreas(SPTP) from pancreatic neuroendocrine tumers (PNET), due to their similar imaging characteristics. There was significant difference in DTI quantitative parameters Fractional Aniso (FA) and Volume ratio Aniso (VRA) between SPTP and PNET. The results showed that the FA and VRA values of DTI sequence of SPTP were significantly higher than that of PNET. Therefore, DTI sequences may be an effective method to identify SPTP and PNET.
