Diffusion-weighted imaging is useful to characterize orbital lesions. Various techniques were advocated to overcome image degradation in head and neck regions. We compared single shot TSE and multishot EP DWI and concluded that the ADC derived from TSE DWI, not from multishot EP DWI, might help to differentiate orbital lymphoma from inflammation.
