Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) is a technique that helps quantify the movement of water molecules at a cellular level. DW-MRI is sensitive to the thermally driven random motion of water protons, which is dependent of their interactions with cell membranes and macromolecules. Consequently, the diffusion of water in tissues reflects at various degrees a combination of tissue cellularity, tortuosity of extracellular spaces, integrity of cell membranes and viscosity of… CONTINUE READING
