Objective: To quantify and compare the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) between incidentally detected prostate carcinoma (IDPC) and benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) in the central gland with MR diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). Methods: The clinical and MR imaging data of 93 patients (8 with IDPC and 85 with BPH) who underwent TURP were analyzed retrospectively. ADC values of central gland and minimum of the two groups were calculated and compared. Results: (1)ADC values of the central gland of the IDPC and BPH were (1.48±0.18)×10 -3 mm 2/s and (1.50±0.14)×10 -3 mm 2/s, respectively (t=-0.312, P=0.756). (2)The minimal ADC values of the IDPC and BPH were (1.15±0.10)×10 -3 mm 2/s and (1.15±0.11)×10 -3 mm 2/s, respectively (t=0.132, P=0.895). Conclusion: DWI can not differentiate IDPC from BPH.
