Table 4 DW imaging signal intensity (SI) and ADC value of benign and malignant ovarian sex cord-stromal tumors

From: The value of MRI for differentiating benign from malignant sex cord-stromal tumors of the ovary: emphasis on diffusion-weighted MR imaging

  Benign(29) Malignant(13) p value
SI    <  0.001
 Low 11 0  
 Moderate 15 1  
 High 3 12  
ADC value (×10−3 mm2/s)a 0.951 ± 0.625 0.825 ± 0.129 0.639
ADC value (×10− 3 mm2/s)b 1.343 ± 0.528 0.825 ± 0.129 0.024
  1. aADC values was measured and averaged in 29 benign SCSTs and 13 malignant SCSTs respectively;
  2. bADC values was measured and averaged in 19 benign SCSTs (fibromas were excluded) and 13 malignant
  3. SCSTs respectively
