Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging
MeSH HeadingDiffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Tree NumberE01.370.350.500.150
Tree NumberE01.370.350.825.500.150
Scope NoteA diagnostic technique that incorporates the measurement of molecular diffusion (such as water or metabolites) for tissue assessment by MRI. The degree of molecular movement can be measured by changes of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) with time, as reflected by tissue microstructure. Diffusion MRI has been used to study BRAIN ISCHEMIA and tumor response to treatment.
