OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to evaluate the utility of single-shot spin-echo echo-planar diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) using a b value of 400-500 s/mm(2) for depicting peritoneal tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four consecutive oncology patients underwent preoperative abdominal and pelvic MRI for tumor staging. MRI included breath-hold DWI with a b value of 400-500 s/mm(2), T1-weighted spoiled gradient-echo, T2-weighted fast spin-echo, and 0- and 5-minute delayed gadolinium… CONTINUE READING
