DWI MRI is a well established method for stroke imaging, within the critical operating window of approximately four to six hours. This requires an accessible, portable and cost effective MR solution typically achieved at very low magnetic fields. In this work, simulation of low b value DWI images at 10mT has been performed in comparison with 1.5T. Also, the affect of pulse sequence design parameters has been explored to arrive at a potentially useful DWI acquisition scheme. Future work includes prospective implementations of the sequence on a 10mT scanner and; denoising and reconstruction of low field images using deep learning.
