We prospectively evaluated thin-slice coronal turbo spin-echo (TSE) diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) covering a larger area with the recently-developed techniques on a 3T MRI scanner, compared with echo-planar imaging (EPI)-DWI in patients undergoing routine hand MRI. Visual score assessment and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurement were performed for patients with suspected hand tumors. TSE-DWI was superior to EPI-DWI, with less image distortion. The visual score and ADC comparison assessments proved that the image noise of TSE-DWI was acceptable.
