Brain Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) - ADC

QUIBIM

QUIBIM provides several tools for analyzing the Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) images to obtain diffusion biomarkers. DWI exploits the random motion of water molecules. The extent of tissue cellularity and the presence of intact cell membrane help determine the impedance of water molecule diffusion. This impedance of water molecules diffusion can be quantitatively assessed using the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value. ADC values are calculated by assessing the signal attenuation that occurs at least at two different b-values with a monoexponential model.
