We evaluated 39 patients with 52 urinary bladder cancer
on synthetic DWI calculated from FOCUS DWI. Compared
with conventional FOV DWI, FOCUS DWI is useful for
evaluation of urinary bladder cancer with high spatial
resolution and less distortion. S-DWI enables to enhance
diagnostic ability of FOCUS without image degradation,
and might be one of the best combinations.
