Abstract

Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) has become an increasingly used tool in abdominal and pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), primarily in the oncologic setting. DWI sequences are being added to routine MRI protocols at many institutions, and as its use has spread, more non-oncologic applications have been explored. The purpose of this article is to provide a review of DWI applications in inflammatory, infectious, autoimmune-mediated, and ischemic processes affecting the genitourinary system.
