Diffusion imaging is a valuable tool in the identification of neurological diseases, especially in an acute setting. Large high-field systems can be challenging to site in an acute setting. Mid-field systems have various siting advantages but historically can suffer from sub-par imaging performance. In this work we compare diffusion weighted imaging performance on a 0.5 T system with a high-performance gradient system to a typical 1.5 T clinical scanner. We demonstrate the ability to achieve comparable imaging performance both analytically as well as through imaging examples.
