The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical value of IVIM and DCE in sarcoma. 7 patients with pathologically proven sarcoma were involved in this study. For IVIM, D-slow was lower in tumor masses than in healthy muscle, but D-fast and PF had no statistic difference between them. For DCE, Ktrans, Kep and Ve were higher in the tumor masses than in healthy muscles . In sarcoma, ADC and D-slow were able to provide information about cell growth, and Ktrans provided information about tumor angiogenesis.
