Q-space imaging of abdominal tumor

A. Lemke, F. Laun, B. Stieltjes and L. Schad

Proceedings 17th Scientific Meeting, International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, Honolulu,, p.2066

In this study, we demonstrate the first implementation of q-space imaging of the abdomen and evaluate its potential to improve the delineation of malignancies in comparison to conventional ADC-maps. We show that the implemented q-space sequence provides good image quality notwithstanding the abdominal motion. We also show that there is a substantial difference in signal decay between healthy pancreatic tissue and pancreatic tumor. In the resulting q-space derived maps, especially in the P(0) map, tumor delineation is clearly superior to conventional ADC maps
