Evaluation of non-Gaussian diffusion in cardiac MRI
The diffusion tensor model assumes Gaussian diffusion and is widely applied in cardiac diffusion MRI. However, diffusion in biological tissue deviates from a Gaussian profile as a result of hindrance and restriction from cell and tissue microstructure, and may be quantified better by non-Gaussian modeling. The aimof this work was to investigate nonGaussian diffusion in healthy and hypertrophic hearts.
Thirteen rat hearts (five healthy, four ...Expand abstract
