Optimized isotropic diffusion weighting.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The authors introduce several sets of time-efficient gradient waveforms for applying isotropic diffusion weighting in NMR experiments. This creates signal attenuation that depends on the trace of the diffusion tensor and is therefore rotationally invariant. Numerical methods for the calculation of such gradient sets are outlined, and results are shown for isotropic and anisotropic gradient hardware and first order flow moment nulled diffusion weighting gradients. Preliminary experimental results from the human brain validate this new technique.
