Diffusion weighted imaging is an increasingly popular method to detect and characterize dense tissues. The detection of such tissues is often performed based on high b-value images, as they show up as bright spots over a dark background. It has been shown that computed high b-value images as helpful as measured images. In particular it is helpful to interactively define the b-value for the computation. Here a new map is proposed that enables the interaction by simple windowing and can achieve an equivalent image impression to the high b-value images.
