ADC mapping by means of a single-shot spiral MRI technique with application in acute cerebral ischemia

, : ADC mapping by means of a single-shot spiral MRI technique with application in acute cerebral ischemia. Magnetic Resonance in Medicine 41(1): 143-147, Jan

Diffusion-weighted MRI based on single-shot echo planar imaging (EPI) has been established as a useful tool to study acute cerebral ischemia. However, EPI is prone to spatial distortion and ghosting artifacts. In this study, a pulse sequence for diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) based on a single-shot spiral readout is presented. Using this technique, multislice apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) mapping can be performed in an interleaved fashion with the same temporal resolution as EPI. Other advantages associated with ADC mapping by the single-shot spiral method include minimal ghosting artifacts, reduced spatial distortion, and capability to scan in arbitrary planes. This technique has been successfully tested in five normal volunteers and three stroke patients. It has been demonstrated that the single-shot spiral technique is capable of producing high quality DWI and ADC trace maps (128 x 128) in the axial, sagittal, and coronal planes, which facilitate clinical diagnosis.
