Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWMRI) is sensitive to tissues' biophysical characteristics, including apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) and volume fractions of water in different populations. In this work, we evaluate the clinical efficacy of DWMRI and high diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (HDWMRI), acquired up to b = 4000 sec/mm(2) to amplify sensitivity to water diffusion properties, in pretreatment prediction of brain tumors' response to radiotherapy.
