We proposed algorithm for the automatic detection and removal of diffusion-related artifacts which seems to be a useful tool to be exploited in the normal DW images pre-processing. It allows the user to detect and evaluate potential artifacts and, if required, to remove the volume corresponding to the detected artifact and rearrange the coordinate table of the applied diffusion gradients.
