Raj Attariwala1, Wayne Picker1

1AIM Medical Imaging, Vancouver, BC, Canada

An overview of the theory of diffusion weighted imaging, and adding this powerful sequence routinely into whole body MRI imaging for improved lesion localization and characterization will be reviewed. Incorporation of diffusion images and critical parameters for ADC calculation as well as interpretation pearls and pitfalls will be presented from a facility that has performed over 1000 diffusion studies.
