Diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is currently an important tool for detecting and characterising hepatic lesions, as well as for monitoring and evaluating the response to the treatment of the tumour disease. The use of this technique is also being assessed for the study of diffuse liver disease. Among the additional advantages of DWI-MRI, is the absence of emission of ionising radiation and not having to use paramagnetic contrasts, which means it can be used in the study of patients with renal failure. Another advantage is the short duration of the diffusion sequence, which means that the examination time in abdominal MRI is scarcely increased. Therefore, it is important that the physician is aware of this diagnostic technique, since DWI is a sequence that should be routinely included in the liver MRI study protocol.
