In a multireader study comparing 4 MRI methods for rectal tumor response evaluation, those incorporating DWI showed the best results when combining diagnostic performance, IOA, and reader preference. The most preferred method (by 73% of readers) was the “DWI patterns” approach with an accuracy of 68%, high specificity of 82%, and group IOA of 0.43. Reader experience level and MRI quality had an evident effect on diagnostic performance and IOA.
