Feasibility of accelerated simultaneous multislice diffusion-weighted MRI of the prostate.

Abstract

PURPOSE To assess the feasibility of simultaneous multislice (SMS) single-shot echo-planar-imaging (EPI) for accelerated diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) of the prostate. MATERIALS AND METHODS For phantom measurements a dedicated DWI phantom with different sucrose concentrations was used. In addition, 10 volunteers and 16 patients with suspected prostate… (More)
