The present study for the first time demonstrated that entropy of T2-weighted imaging as well as apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of leiomyomas before uterine artery embolization (UAE) has predictive value for leiomyoma volume reduction 6 months after embolization. A combination of entropy and ADC may help interventional radiologists with patient selection, preoperative planning and evaluation.
