The Basics of MRI - RIT Center for Imaging Science

At its June 15, 2017 meeting, the Board of Governors approved the promotions of:
Simulation of how differing b values affect the appearance of DWI images and how to calculate ADC. , simulated DWI imagesshowing bright CSF on the low b-value images and increased visibility of the left frontal stroke on the high b-value images. , plot of thelog of the signal intensity of different tissues (blue, CSF; gray, brain; brown, stroke) at varying b-values. The slope of the lineconnecting the point is the ADC. , simulated ADC image; areas of diffusion restriction, which have the flattest slope on the center plot, havethe darkest signal on the ADC image.

Natan, who will share the prize with Paul Wiegmann of the University of Chicago, is cited "."
Diffusion Gradients. As we have pointed out, diffusion can vary based on an underlying pathology; the ability to measure and compare the diffusion coefficients within anorgan is important for a growing number of applications, such as evaluating for acute stroke. An MR pulse sequence can be designed to be sensitive to moleculardiffusion, using similar concepts to those responsible for and .In particular, particles that move in between the application of two spatial gradient pulses will experience different gradient strengths (since they arein different positions).
