The median tumor overlap between VOIDWI and VOIPET was 82% (VOIDWI in VOIPET) and 62% (VOIPET in VOIDWI) on scan 1 and scan 2, respectively. Across patients, the correlation between SUV and apparent diffusion coefficient was weak and nonsignificant. However, in individual patients a weak but significant correlation was identified on a voxel-by-voxel basis.CONCLUSION: In multiparametric imaging with the integrated PET/MR scanner, the VOIs from DWI and (18)F-FDG PET were both within the target volume for radiotherapy and overlapped substantially although not completely. No correlation between (18)F-FDG uptake and DWI could be found across patients, but within individual patients a statistically significant, but weak, voxel-by-voxel correlation was found. The findings suggest that information on glucose uptake and diffusion coefficient carries complementary information of interest that may be relevant for radiotherapy treatment planning.
