A Novel and Cost-effective IVIM MRI Quality Assurance Method


1Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, United States

Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) MRI measures the combined effect of perfusion in the capillaries and water diffusion in the extracellular extravascular space. However, verification of the accuracy of IVIM is not performed routinely as it requires a flow phantom and a pump with accurate and constant output. Our goal is to develop a practical IVIM quality assurance method based on a simple and compact flow phantom driven by a power injector. We have demonstrated that using a simple phantom and a power injector as standard is feasible and can be easily implemented on many clinical/research scanners
