Results are shown whereby good-quality prostate DWI results were obtained in a relatively-short period of time (5 min), with improved geometric fidelity over single-shot EPI imaging. The approach involved an accelerated multi-shot diffusion imaging method previously developed for brain imaging and adapted here for the prostate. Measurements of prostate size indicated an improvement in geometric fidelity by about 2.5-fold.
