This study aimed to evaluate and compare quantitatively the effect of image distortion of multiplexed sensitivity encoding (MUSE) and conventional single-shot echo-planar imaging (ssEPI) for diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) of the prostate. Our result showed that prostate images by MUSE-DWI can provide significant less distortions and higher SNR than that by conventional ssEPI-DWI at the similar acquisition time.
