PURPOSE To determine if a reduced-field-of-view (rFOV) diffusion intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) sequence can differentiate the imaging characteristics of tumors with microsatellite instability (MSI) from those that are microsatellite stable (MSS) in patients with clinical FIGO stage IA endometrial cancer and if MRI can be used to determine MSI status. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sagittal rFOV diffusion-weighted images were obtained in 12 patients on a 3T scanner using six b-values (0, 50, 100… CONTINUE READING
