Abstract

Diffusion weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is available on all modern MR scanners. It depicts the motion of water molecules in the brain tissue and intracranial foreign tissues and provides information on changes in the proportion of intra- and extracellular space and the characteristics of foreign intracranial tissues and fluids. It is of utmost importance eg. in the diagnostics and differential diagnostics of acute ischaemic brain lesions, the diagnostics of inflammatory brain processes and in the differential diagnostics of intracranial space-occupying lesions. The examination method of short scanning and post-processing time must be completed with the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps and it is indispensable in the everyday neuroradiological diagnostics. Diffusion tensor imaging and tractography are able to depict the white matter tracts. They require a longer scanning and post-processing time and have several technical problems yet to be solved, but they provide help in their current state e.g. in the surgical planning of intracranial space-occupying lesions.
