abstract

  • Pre-UAE ADC of leiomyomas correlated significantly with percent VR following UAE. In contrast, no correlation was seen between VR post-UAE and conventional imaging findings. This suggests that VR following UAE depends on leiomyoma histology reflected in DWI rather than features revealed by conventional MRI.
