Field-of-view optimized and constrained undistorted single-shot (FOCUS) imaging provides relatively high resolution images with few artifacts. However, application of this technique for evaluation of normal pituitary glands and pituitary macroadenomas has not been reported to date. The study aims to evaluate the image quality and value of FOCUS DWI in evaluation of normal pituitary glands and pituitary macroadenomas. Our results suggest that FOCUS DWI exhibited obviously superior image quality both in normal pituitary glands and macroadenomas in a clinically feasible scan time. Moreover, it might be helpful for evaluating the consistency of pituitary macroadenomas.
