Entangled information with conventional MRI

Our collaborators, Björn Lampinen et al., have published an interesting article in NeuroImage, where our Research Partner Dr. Markus Nilsson is senior author.  This paper discusses how conventional diffusion MRI entangles information on the microscopic scale, and how this can result in parameter bias.

Data acquired from healthy volunteers and glioma patients in this article pinpoint the drawbacks of relying on model assumptions; they will never be as specific as obtaining measurements that separate information on tissue architecture already at the acquisition stage without the need of biophysical models.

Random Walk Imaging AB is developing a novel proprietary approach to diffusion MRI that enables clinical researchers and radiologists to better visualise and analyse diffusion MRI data. RWI’s software solutions introduce a level of specificity to diffusion MRI that is unprecedented and that has the potential to non-invasively differentiate pathologies affected by changes in tissue microstructure. Based in Lund, part of the Swedish-Danish cross-border region of Medicon Valley, Random Walk Imaging has a broad intellectual property portfolio and unique translational expertise in advanced diffusion NMR and MRI methods.
