The purpose of this article was to show basic principles, acquisition, advantages, disadvantages, and clinical applications of intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). IVIM MRI as a method was introduced in the late 1980s, but recently it started attracting more interest thanks to its applications in many fields, particularly in oncology and neuroradiology. This imaging technique has been developed with the objective of obtaining not only a functional analysis of different organs but also different types of lesions. Among many accessible tools in diagnostic imaging, IVIM MRI aroused the interest of many researchers in terms of studying its applicability in the evaluation of abdominal organs and diseases. The major conclusion of this article is that IVIM MRI seems to be a very auspicious method to investigate the human body, and that nowadays the most promising clinical application for IVIM perfusion MRI is oncology. However, due to lack of standardisation of image acquisition and analysis, further studies are needed to validate this method in clinical practice.
