Diffusion MRI in ischemic epiphysis of the femoral head: an experimental study.


PURPOSE To evaluate whether line-scan diffusion-weighted imaging (LSDWI) can provide temporal information of epiphyseal ischemia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ischemia was induced by ligation of arteries of the unilateral femoral head in piglets (N = 25). LSDWI was performed at several time points after ligation. A comparison of apparent diffusion coefficients… (More)
