The purpose of this study is to compare image quality and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value between single-shot spin-echo echo-planar imaging (SS-EPI) and integrated slice-specific dynamic shimming (iShim) DWI methods in liver. Compared to SS-EPI, iShim had better image quality and showed more small lesions. No significant differences of ADC values were found between the two methods.
