Introduction Cell density is an important marker of tumor agressivness than can be evaluated using diffusion weighted imaging. Unlike current apparent diffusion coefficient measurements, the surface to volume ratio (S/V) is directly linked to cell density. It can be determined by measuring the time dependent diffusion constant D(t). The D(t) is time dependent since random walker “feel”restrictions as time evolves depending on the length scale of present microstructures. This connects D(t) to S… CONTINUE READING
