The study aimed to explore the role of Whole-body DWI in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and obtain the imaging characteristics of metastases. Ten patients with histologically confimed clear cell RCC and possible metastatic lesions were underwent standard Whole-body DWI, chest CT and routine MR examinations before chemotherapy. The results showed that the whole body DWI was very sensitive to the metastatic lesions in clear cell RCC and DWI showed its high rate of detection in pulmonary metastases. Whole body DWI had revealed great potential in metastatic screening of clear cell RCC.
