Abstract

The purpose of our study was to assess the efficiency of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) and the quantification of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values in differentiating colorectal carcinoma from colonic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in cases with isolated colonic wall lesions and uncertain clinical and radiologic diagnostic criteria.
