Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM)
model is useful tool to observe the microcirculatory perfusion, but its
stability still needs to be improved. We propose the envelope bounding
technique to reduce the fluctuated signal at low b-value, and use this new
signal profile to fit IVIM model. This improvement gives a more stable outcome
with fast diffusion (D*) and perfusion fraction (PF).
