Optimization of PROPELLER Methods for Quantitative MRI of Liver Cancer

2008 unpublished
Diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) water mobility measurements can be useful for non-invasive interrogation of tissue microstructures. DWI can differentiate viable and necrotic tumor tissues.  ...  The most commonly used single-shot DWI techniques are superior in avoiding motion artifacts; however, they are limited by image distortion, chemical shift artifacts and reduced spatial resolution.  ...  The purpose of this preliminary study was to demonstrate the feasibility of using single-shot diffusion-weighted single-shot echo-planar imaging (DW-EPI) for imaging liver tumor necrosis in the in vivo  ...
