Positive surgical margins(PSMs) are associated with local recurrence and distant metastasis of prostate cancer which affect the long-term survival rate of patients1-3. IVIM can simultaneously observe microcirculatory perfusion of blood and intracellular and extracellular water molecules diffusion4. The results of our study show that f-Bi can be used to predict positive margins of radical prostatectomy.
