Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the ability and the utility of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with different 'b' values to visualise benign and malignant lung lesions, and to determine which 'b' value (b = 300, 500, or 1000 s/mm(2)) was most useful in differentiating benign from malignant lung lesions.
