Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in human transplantation was regarded as a promising indicator for dectecting graft dysfunction.According to the IVIM theory, ADC integrates the effects of both diffusion of water molecules and microcirculation of blood in capillaries. By separating diffusion and perfusion, we could observe each component’s contribution to the changes of ADC values. Furthermore, the exchanges of intracellular water molecules with extracellular’s may have impact on ADC. Thus, AQP ADC might reflect quantitative water channel expression.
