TO ASSESS THE ROLE OF DWI IN CHARACTERIZING THE RENAL NEOPLAMS INTO THE VARIOUS SUBTYPES USING THE ADC VALUES OF THE LESIONS AND FINDING ITS ACCURACY BY HISTOPATHOLOGICAL CORRELATION.

This prospective study was done in the Department of Radiodiagnosis at M.G.M. Medical College, & M.Y. Hospital, Indore. A total of 40 patients who were referred to our department with strong clinical suspicion of renal lesion and those diagnosed by ultrasonography or contrast enhanced CT scan having a renal mass on either of them, were subjected to a non-contrast.
ADC values are expressed in 10-3 mm2/s. DW imaging with ADC values allows differentiation of clear cell, papillary and chromophobe subtypes of RCCs, suggesting that DW imaging may be a useful tool in the preoperative characterization of RCC. Hence, MRI with DWI in particular is a very valuable non invasive tool for the Identification, characterization and differentiation of renal lesions.
