Title:
Characterization of focal liver lesions by ADC measurements using a respiratory triggered diffusion-weighted single-shot echo-planar MR imaging technique. 
Abstract:
The aim of this study was to determine apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) of focal liver lesions on the basis of a respiratory triggered diffusion-weighted single-shot echo-planar MR imaging sequence (DW-SS-EPI) and to evaluate whether ADC measurements can be used to characterize lesions. One hundred and two patients with focal liver lesions [11 hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC), 82 metastases, 4 focal nodular hyperplasias (FNH), 56 hemangiomas and 51 cysts; mean size, 16.6 mm; range 5-92 mm...    »
