The diagnostic performance of reduced FOV DWI (rFOV-DWI) for assessing the local extent of surgically proven 24 cervical cancers was evaluated. The delineation of tumor margin on rFOV-DWI was assessed, and invasion to the vagina and parametrium evaluated on rFOV-DWI was compared with the histologically confirmed tumor extent. rFOV-DWI delineated the tumor margins better than T2WI and 3D DCE-MRI with statistically significance. Parametrial invasion and vaginal invasion as documented by rFOV-DWI agreed with the histopathological findings in 100% and 95% of cases, respectively.
