Abstract

A tissue phantom for diffusion-weighted imaging was developed, basing its contrast between two compartments on different apparent diffusion coefficients, without contrast due to T2 relaxation and proton density. These contrast properties of the phantom simulate the situation found in normal gray matter and areas of acute ischemia. A possible application of the phantom was demonstrated for the investigation of the accuracy of volume measurements based on diffusion-weighted images.
