Intra-voxel incoherent motion (IVIM) diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) is an emerging method to derive microscopic structural information non-invasively [1]. To allow for a broader usage, in this work, an OsiriX plug-in was developed to submit the DWI analysis and specific the IVIM model for integration in the clinical routine diagnostics.Based on 30 data sets of prostate, a t-test revealed, that there was no significant difference (p < 0.05) between the plugin and a reference implmentation.
