The aim of this technical development was to investigate the use of multiple whole body two point Dixon imaging as method to acquire high quality whole body anatomical images in conjunction with whole body diffusion weighted imaging. Furthermore, we assess the quality of alignment between Dixon images and diffusion weighted images acquired in the same sitting.
