Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) imaging allows the quantification of diffusion and pseudo-perfusion in tissues and has been proposed as an alternative to conventional contrast agent enhanced (CE) T1-weighted scans. Its qualitative benefits for diagnosing juvenile idiopathic arthritis in the knee has previously been demonstrated. In this work, quantitative data of diffusion and perfusion fraction values between synovitis patients and healthy volunteers were compared in a prospective setting.
