To overcome the difficulties of multistation whole-body DWI (wbDWI), the authors have proposed a continuously moving table (CMT) wbDWI method in the previous work. However, more aspects of the CMT-wbDWI have to be validated to utilize this method in a clinical setting. Thus, the influence of continuous table motion on diffusion data was examined in this study by calculating apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values using a spherical water phantom. The experimental results show that the general tendency of ADC changes is preserved in all cases.
