In this study, a simplified approach to obtain perfusion
influence from diffusion weighted imaging (DWI)
measurements for breast cancer assessment is proposed.
Our results present how the relative perfusion effect
derived from different monoexponential fitting schemes
of DWI measurements can be obtained. Furthermore, this
simplified approach offers a potential for breast cancer
differentiation by means of the derived biomarker.
