The objective of this study was to prospectively
evaluate short-term test-retest reproducibility of IVIM
parameters and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of
variable tissue in the head and neck using 4b values, 4b
values with cardiac gating and 17b values, respectively.
As a result, IVIM DWI using 4bvalues with gating was the
most reproducible method in the head and neck in
comparison with IVIM DWIs using 4b values or 17 values.
