Cervical cancer is the leading cause of death in gynecological malignancy around the world. The most important prognostic factors include stage at diagnosis, histological subtype, tumor differentiation and et al, which are critical to make the optimal treatment strategies. However, there are still huge challenges in accurate assessment tumor characteristics even by clinical examination and biopsy. DWI has showed promising results in assessment tumor characteristics in cervical cancer. Diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI), an extension of DWI, is more sensitive to tissue heterogeneity and water exchange. This study demonstrated that DKI-derived parameters are helpful in assessment histological features of cervical cancer.
