Table 3 Detailed analysis of ADC values among both progressive and non-progressive groups

From: Diffusion-weighted MR imaging diagnostic merits in the post-therapeutic assessment of musculoskeletal soft tissue sarcoma

  Progressive group Non-progressive group P value
Mean SD Median Minimum Maximum Mean SD Median Minimum Maximum
ADC initial 1.33 0.38 1.20 0.80 1.90 1.35 0.41 1.30 0.60 2.20 0.820
Follow up ADC 1.24 0.35 1.20 0.70 2.10 1.63 0.42 1.60 0.80 2.40 0.003
ADC% − 3.08 23.5 − 7.00 − 37.00 40.00 27.09 48.09 12.00 − 27.00 160.00 0.043
  1. ADC values after treatment in the non-progressive group were significantly higher than those before treatment (p < 0.05). Contrarily, the ADC values after treatment in the progressive group were not significantly different from those before treatment (p > 0.05)
