Paper Abstract

The purpose of this study is to further investigate the approach of DWI to estimate the cell viability immediately after treatment. In this work, we reported the result from 12 canine prostate experiments underwent cryoablation or hyperthermic therapy. The lesion detected by diffusion-weighted imaging was evaluated through apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value, image contrast, and lesion contour compared to contrast enhanced imaging and histology.
