Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) with integrated slice-specific dynamic-shimming (iShim) could improve image quality compared with conventional 3D-Shimming single-shot echo-planar-imaging (SS-EPI) DWI in patients with rectal cancer. iShim DWI can help differentiate rectal cancer from normal walls and predict pathologic characterizations. iShim DWI could be an effective and promising approach and a good alternative to conventional 3D-Shimming SS-EPI DWI for patients with rectal cancer.
