Diffusion weighted imaging is originally sensitive to all types of motions of the spins, including both diffusion and perfusion. Simultaneous perfusion measurement may be still possible by inclusion of sampling with low b-values. DWI was performed with low and high b-values in order to quantify and characterize perfusion contributions using DWI at 1.5T and 3T.
