- PublicationMetadata onlyThe role of apparent diffusion coefficient values in differentiation between adrenal masses(2014-03-01T00:00:00Z) Cicekci, Mehtap; ONUR, MEHMET RUHİ; Aydin, Ayse Murat; Gul, Yeliz; ÖZKAN, YUSUF; AKPOLAT, NUSRET; KOCAKOÇ, ERCAN; KOCAKOÇ, ERCANThe aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values in differentiation between solid adrenal masses. The ADC values of 73 adrenal lesions (54 benign, 19 malignant) in 69 patients were measured at b 100, 600 and 1000 gradients on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI). No statistically significant difference was found between ADC values of benign and malignant adrenal masses, nonadenomatous benign adrenal masses and malignant adrenal masses, adrenal adenomas and nonadenomatous lesions, adenomas and metastases, adenomas and pheochromocytomas, metastases and pheochromocytomas. ADC values are not helpful in the differentiation between solid adrenal masses. (C) 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
- PublicationMetadata onlyUtility of ADC measurement on diffusion-weighted MRI in differentiation of prostate cancer, normal prostate and prostatitis(2013-08-01T00:00:00Z) Esen, Meltem; ONUR, MEHMET RUHİ; AKPOLAT, NUSRET; ORHAN, İRFAN; KOCAKOÇ, ERCAN; KOCAKOÇ, ERCANTo determine the utility of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values in differentiation of prostate cancer from normal prostate parenchyma and prostatitis we obtained ADC values of 50 patients at b 100, 600 and 1,000 s/mm(2) diffusion gradients. The ADC values of prostate cancer group were significantly lower than normal prostate and prostatitis group at b 600 and 1,000 s/mm(2) gradients. The ADC values at high diffusion gradients may be used in differentiation prostate cancer from normal prostate and prostatitis.
