Our preliminary results show that navigator echo respiratory triggering restricted FOV (rFOV) ss-DW imaging is feasible with similar SNR compared to large FOV DWI, and also demonstrates higher overall image quality with reduced artifacts. Furthermore, measurements from ADC maps derived from rFOV DWI show significantly lower ADC values in the body and trends towards lower ADCs in the head and tail, a finding that merits further investigation.
