To evaluate the feasibility and added value of diffusion-weighted (DW) imaging (DWI) in oncology. Material and methods: The paper will review the applications of DWI for: 1. Tumour detection, 2. Tumour characterisation, 3. Distinguishing tumour tissue from nontumour tissue, 4. Monitoring and predicting treatment response. Retrospective analysis of the various cases from head to toe malignancies including brain tumours, head and neck tumours, thoracic malignancies, breast tumour, hepatic and pancreatic malignancies, GI tumours, GU tumours and bone tumours were evaluated and the qualitative and quantitative ADC values were analysed and compared with the tumour histopathology. In some case pre and post therapy response was also analysed. Results: A brief technical overview of functional Diffusion Weighted MRI(FDW-MRI) acquisition protocols, qua
