Abstract

Objectives To explore the correlations of parameters derived from standard diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), diffusion kur- tosis imaging (DKI) and intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) with the Ki-67 proliferation status. Methods Seventy-five patients with histologically proven sinonasal malignancies who underwent standard DWI, DKI and IVIM were retrospectively reviewed. The mean, minimum, maximum and whole standard DWI [apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC)], DKI [diffusion kurtosis (K) and diffusion coefficient (Dk)] and IVIM [pure diffusion coefficient (D), pseudo-diffusion coefficient (D*) and perfusion fraction ( f )] parameters were measured and correlated with the Ki-67 labelling index (LI). The Ki-67 LI was categorised as high (> 50%) or low (≤ 50%). Results The K and f values were positively correlated with the Ki-67 LI (rho = 0.295~0.532), whereas the ADC, Dk and D values were negatively correlated with the Ki-67 LI (rho = -0.443~-0.277). The ADC, Dk and D values were lower, whereas the K value was higher in sinonasal malignancies with a high Ki-67 LI than in those in a low Ki-67 LI (all p < 0.05). A higher maximum K value (K > 0.977) independently predicted a high Ki-67 status [odds ratio (OR) = 7.614; 95% confidence interval (CI) = max 2.197-38.674; p
