IVIM analysis can provide the perfusion fraction f
and the pseudodiffusion coefficient D* or Dp in addition to the
diffusion parameters. The product of f and D* is known to relate to
cerebral blood flow. Recently, a higher diagnostic performance of fD*
than f and D* has been reported.
We propose a method to estimate fDp without estimating f and Dp using DKI analysis. The DKI based IVIM
analysis can be implemented easily and provides fDp values with a high degree of precision.
