Methods: Institutional Review Board of our hospital approved this study protocol. Subjects comprised 38 PDACs confirmed by pathology. Pancreatic multiple b values DWI with 15 b values of 0, 10, 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 150, 200, 400, 800, 1,000, 1200, 1,500, and 2,000 s/mm2 was performed using GE Discovery MR750 3.0T scanner. ADCstandard, Dslow, Dfast and ƒ values of all PDACs were calculated using mono- and bi-exponential models. Parameters of well/moderately differentiated and poorly differentiated PDAC were compared using Independent Sample t-test. P values },
