Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging

"Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus, MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure, which enables searching at various levels of specificity.

A diagnostic technique that incorporates the measurement of molecular diffusion (such as water or metabolites) for tissue assessment by MRI.

Diffusion MRI has been used to study BRAIN ISCHEMIA and tumor response to treatment.
