Many abnormalities are easily seen on DWIBS image and also visible on the other images.

Abnormalities in bone are believed to be hypercellular bone marrow.

Clinical impact of coronal whole body DWIBS

The coronal whole body DWIBS protocol is considerably faster than the previously used axial whole body MRI. This allows time to include more other sequences in the examination.
