Diffusion encoding, or diffusion weighting, is commonly achieved by applying a pair of balanced pulsed-field gradients during spin evolution. An alternative way to obtain diffusion measurements is to select dipolar correlation distances using the distant dipolar field (DDF) in systems with abundant spin density, such as water in tissues. Diffusion weighting using this effect is unique in that the refocusing "gradient" is carried within the sample, and thus the macroscopic motion of the sample… CONTINUE READING
