Body Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) - ADC


Quibim has developed a noninvasive post-processing application designed to calculate the water molecules diffusivity in tissues. This module calculates ADC (Apparent Diffusion Coefficient) from two b-values diffusion MR imaging by applying the mono-exponential model of the diffusion signal. The diffusion coefficients (ADC) is decreased in regions with high cellularity and restricted intersticial space.
