Diffusion refers to the random translational motion of molecules, also called Brownian motion, resulting from the thermal energy carried by these molecules. In the human body, we mostly consider diffusion of water molecules. In this chapter, the basic principles that render the MRI signal sensitive to diffusion are discussed together with applications in clinical and research studies.

Abstract

Diffusion refers to the random translational motion of molecules, also called Brownian motion, resulting from the thermal energy carried by these molecules. In the human body, we mostly consider diffusion of water molecules. In this chapter, the basic principles that render the MRI signal sensitive to diffusion are discussed together with applications in clinical and research studies.
