A relatively new imaging technique, q-space imaging (QSI), uses multiple b-values to generate displacement profiles of diffusing molecules. Unidentified bright objects observed in children affected by neurofibromatosis have been reported to display increased apparent diffusion coefficient values compared to normal-appearing brain regions. To our knowledge this is first report of the findings of high-b-value QSI, including quantification of mean displacement, in these lesions and
