To evaluate 3.0T DWI technique on Normal pancreas and pancreatic cancer, five DWI acquisitions were all performed in 15 normal volunteers and 30 patients with pancreatic cancer. Artifacts, SNR and ADC value of normal pancreas and C, CNR and ADC value of pancreatic cancer were investigated. Statistically higher C and CNR of pancreatic cancer was noticed in respiratory-triggered DWI with MPG pulses in XYZ direction and inversion recovery for fat saturation compared to other four DWI acquisitions, and its ADC value can better disclose histopathological state in pancreatic cancer, adjacent pancreatic tissue and distal pancreatitis.
