Abstract

We previously reported that dynamic contrastenhanced MRI parameters and time-signal intensity curves (TICs; also known as contrast index curves) are useful for the differential diagnosis of jawbone lesions. In particular, odontogenic fibroma and ossifying fibroma, which possess similar histopathological features (i.e., a mixture of hard and soft tissue components), display unique TIC patterns, and we consider that the TIC patterns of these lesions reflect their hard and soft tissue components. Therefore, fibrous dysplasia, which contains fibrous tissue and immature isolated trabeculae composed of woven bone, is expected to display an interesting TIC. The purpose of this study was to assess the utility of TICs for differentiating between the abovementioned lesions, which have similar histopathological components.
