Pancreatic cancer is one of the few cancers which have shown little improvement in survival over the past 30 years, with a 5-year survival rate of less than 5%. Combined with traditional MRI (such as T1WI, T2WI), Diffusion-weighed imaging (DWI) has showed high sensitivity and specificity in diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. We introduced a new way which may play a role in early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, using DWI.
