To assess if intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) imaging can be used to predict early response to chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in cervical cancer. IVIM imaging before and during CRT (at doses of 20 and 40 Gy) was performed in 17 patients with cervical squamous cell carcinoma. The percentage changes of IVIM parameters were significantly higher for complete remission (CR) than non-CR groups. IVIM may play a supplementary role for predicting early response to CRT in cervical cancer.
