Toward an optimal distribution of b values for intravoxel incoherent motion imaging.
The intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) theory provides a framework for the separation of perfusion and diffusion effects in diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). To measure the three free IVIMExpand
An in vivo verification of the intravoxel incoherent motion effect in diffusion‐weighted imaging of the abdomen
To investigate the vascular contribution to the measured apparent diffusion coefficient and to validate the Intra Voxel Incoherent Motion theory, the signal as a function of the b‐value was measuredExpand
Differentiation of Pancreas Carcinoma From Healthy Pancreatic Tissue Using Multiple b-Values: Comparison of Apparent Diffusion Coefficient and Intravoxel Incoherent Motion Derived Parameters
Objectives:To evaluate in detail the diagnostic performance of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) to differentiate pancreas carcinoma from healthy pancreas using the apparent diffusion coefficientExpand
Investigation of prostate cancer using diffusion-weighted intravoxel incoherent motion imaging.
PURPOSE The objective of this work was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of the intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) model to differentiate between healthy and malignant prostate tissue. Expand
Intravoxel Incoherent Motion MRI for the Differentiation Between Mass Forming Chronic Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Carcinoma
Purpose:To determine which of the quantitative parameters obtained from intravoxel incoherent motion diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) is the most significant for the differentiation betweenExpand
Enhancing pancreatic adenocarcinoma delineation in diffusion derived intravoxel incoherent motion f‐maps through automatic vessel and duct segmentation
Diffusion‐based intravoxel incoherent motion imaging has recently gained interest as a method to detect and characterize pancreatic lesions, especially as it could provide a radiation‐ and contrastExpand
Value of multiparametric prostate MRI of the peripheral zone.
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES MRI of the prostate offers the possibility to localize and stage prostate cancer and may improve detection of disease. Currently, T2-weighted images and spectroscopy are theExpand
Fibrosis and Pancreatic Lesions: Counterintuitive Behavior of the Diffusion Imaging–Derived Structural Diffusion Coefficient D
IntroductionStroma reaction leading to fibrosis is the most characteristic histopathological feature of both pancreatic carcinoma and chronic pancreatitis with increased fibrosis compared withExpand
Implementation of Dual-Source RF Excitation in 3 T MR-Scanners Allows for Nearly Identical ADC Values Compared to 1.5 T MR Scanners in the Abdomen
Background To retrospectively and prospectively compare abdominal apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values obtained within in a 1.5 T system and 3 T systems with and without dual-source parallelExpand
Diffusion kurtosis imaging of the liver at 3 Tesla: in vivo comparison to standard diffusion-weighted imaging
Background Functional techniques like diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) are gaining more and more importance in liver magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) is an advancedExpand
