DWI

Diffusion Weighted Imaging

In Brief

In DWI contrast is created based on how far water molecules can randomly disperse due to Brownian motion. This tells us about the structure of tissues at the cellular level.

SPLICE

Split acquisition of fast spin echo signals for diffusion imaging.

In Brief

Acquisition of both a spin echo and a stimulated echo, to allow faster and higher resolution diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) than single-shot TSE diffusion, as well as lower distortion than EPI-based diffusion imaging.
