DWIBS (Diffusion weighted Whole body Imaging with Background body signal Suppression) is a method for diffusion-weighted imaging using free breathing, STIR and high resolution 3D display.

Transverse slices are used  to reduce the rectangular field of view (rFOV). Along with the use of SENSE,  this allows to obtain a lower EPI factor. This enables the acquisition of diffusion weighted images with low levels of distortion.


STIR fat suppression is used to give complete and even fat suppression of the background tissues. This is considered to be better than SPIR, especially in the upper chest and peripheral areas.


DWIBS is scanned during free breathing, which allows an increased number of NSA to be used.

As a result, SNR increases and motion artifacts are reduced.


Using the MIP tool, parallel reconstruction and 3D images can be obtained from the DWIBS source data to give a good overview and easy review of the results.
