This study aimed at investigating the utility of intra-voxel incoherent motion model (IVIM) with multi-b values DWI in diagnosis and grading of cervical cancer. Moreover, the up to date concept of invasive edge of tumor was adopted, which had closer relation with tumor aggressiveness and prognosis. The results showed that both mono-exponential model and IVIM model could help to differentiate cervical cancer from normal cervix. Perfusion fraction (F) at tumor edge showed the best diagnostic performance in grading cervical squmous cancer. Therefore, IVIM model might demonstrate capability on differentiating and grading cervical cancer.
