There are various techniques to address the susceptibility artifact in DWI. However, the current available DWI techniques are still quite challenge for whole body DWI applications. In this report, we investigated a prototype slie by slice shimming WBDWI sequence for lymphma and MM patients. In the most difficult region such as neck, we achieved a higher rate of good image quality and consistent measures in other body regions as comapred to conventional WBDWI.
