We explore the utility of 3D APTw imaging and DKI in assessing the pathological factors of rectal adenocarcinoma. The mean APTSI and MK was higher with the advanced staging and grading in rectal adenocarcinoma. In addition, the mean APTw SI have a significantly positive correlation with WHO grades. Therefore, the mean APTw SI is promising to be a non-invasive biomarker in clinical practice and to become a potential predictor for estimating the prognosis of rectal adenocarcinoma.
