AIM: To evaluate the ability and the utility of diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with high and low b values to visualize benign and malignant renal lesions, and to determine which b value (b = 100, 600, or 1000 s/mm(2)) was most useful in differentiating benign from malignant renal lesions.
