This study investigates the ability of ADCs acquired at 3T to predict response to chemoradiotherapy in advanced cervical cancer (N=14). No significant difference between average ADC of responders (complete and partial response) and non-responders (stable and progressive disease) was found (p= 0.06). Mean group ADC values increased systematically with response improvement, supporting further study in a large cohort.
