Abstract

Aim: To assess the ability of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in predicting the overall survival in patients who underwent Yttrium 90 radioembolization (Y-90-RE) for colorectal liver metastases (CLM) with other well-established clinical and imaging parameters by comparing the pre- and post-treatment apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of the lesions.
