Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) - ADC


Quibim’s Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) - ADC enables to automatically calculate the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) to quantify the diffusion of water molecules in tissues.
The suite provides information on the cellular and microstructural organization of tissues and highlights the relationship between pathological changes and the diffusion of water molecules. This suite is aimed at the characterization of tumoral processes to support early detection, diagnosis, treatment response evaluation and follow-up of patients.
