We compared three diffusion models to evaluate rectal cancer, which include mono-exponential, bi-mono-exponential and continuously distributed exponential model. We found the continuously distributed exponential model has an extremely small value of chi-square in fitting the rectal cancer diffusion data which means this model may reveal the true distribution of diffusion components in rectal cancer.
