Isotropic Steady State Diffusion Weighted Imaging
Kim T, Pauly J, Gold G
Steady-state diffusion weighted imaging (SS-DWI) is potentially efficacious in the diagnosis of stroke location. However, white matter anisotropic tissues produce hyper- and hypo-intense signal and can make the stroke locate indiscernible. In this work we introduce isotropic steady-state diffusion weighted imaging (isotropic SS-DWI), which creates quasi-isotropic diffusion weighting and reduces the effect of diffusion anisotropy notably.
