Impact of blood flow on diffusion coefficients of the human kidney: A time-resolved ECG-triggered diffusion-tensor imaging (DTI) study at 3T
Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 07/17/2012
Heusch P et al. – Apparent diffusion coefficients (ADC) –values in the renal cortex as well as fractional anisotropy (FA)–values in the renal medulla are influenced by renal blood flow. This impact has to be considered when interpreting renal ADC– and FA–values.
