ADC, calculated from diffusion-weighted MRI, is a potential quantitative imaging biomarker for detection of early treatment response. Imaging in the liver suffers from poor reproducibility, mainly as a result of respiratory motion. In this study we compare reproducibility in a multi-site, multi vendor setting at both 1.5 T and 3 T field strengths, for patients histologically diagnosed with colorectal cancer, who have radiological evidence of liver metastasis.
