EEEE.3 Relationship of Derived Diffusion Model Parametric Maps to Diffusion Weighted Source Images

This example illustrates how to describe the manner in which an ADC Parametric Map image was derived from B0 and B1000 images. The intent is to provide links to the images, not to replicate all the information that can be provided in the Quantity Definition Sequence.

This particular example illustrates the reference from an ADC Parametric Map to a pair of Enhanced MR images, one for each b-value (or a pair of subsets of frames of a single Enhanced MR image), but the same principle is applicable when single frame IODs are used as source or derived image.

In this approach:
