Diffusion Weighted Images datasets with high spatial resolution and strong diffusion weighting are often deteriorated with low SNR. Here, we demonstrate the feasibility of a recently presented repetition-free averaging based de-noising (AWESOME). That technique reduces noise by averaging over a series of N images with varying contrast in wavelet space and regains intensities and object features initially covered by noise. We show that high resolution DWIs are achievable in a quality that almost equals to that obtained from 6fold complex averaging.
