There has been no previous report on the utility of computed DWI with b-values above 1000 s/mm2 for the evaluation of cervical cancer. We aimed to evaluate the utility of computed DWI in cervical cancer and investigate the optimal b-value using computed DWI with b-values of 800, 1000, 1300, 1600 and 2000 s/mm2. Computed DWI with b-values of 1300 or 1600 s/mm2 may be recommended for the clinical evaluation of the extent of cervical cancer.
