The combination of higher spatial resolution and decreased imaging artifacts associated with reduced FOV spinal cord DWI improves clinical evaluation of both normal and pathological conditions. We will review the basics of the technique and present multiple cases in which rFOV DWI was helpful for clinical diagnosis.
