To assess the fitted parameters of DKI in female cervix and to investigate their potential in distinguishing tumors from diverse healthy tissues. The presence of rich collagen and fibers in healthy cervix helps to differentiate itself from the heterogeneious and cell-rich malignancies. It is concluded that DKI can be performed as a feasible technique to depict the real phenomenon of non-Gaussian water diffusion behavior in female cervix.
