This study aimed to evaluate the value of the combination of DWIBS (diffusion weighted imaging with background signal suppression) with whole body T1w imaging for diagnosing bone marrow involvement (BMI) in lymphoma patients, compared to PET/CT imaging. In the first part of this study, patients with newly diagnosed lymphoma were includedand whole body DWIBS, T1w and PET/CT images were acquired for all 20 subjects. For the assessment of individual lesions, DWIBS with whole body T1w has advantages over DWIBS and has similar ability with PET/CT to detect BMI lesions.
