Sammanfattning

Purpose: Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) modeling for estimation of the diffusion coefficient (D) and perfusion fraction (f) is increasingly popular, but no consensus on standard protocols exists. This study provides a framework for optimization of b-value schemes for reduced estimation uncertainty of D and f from segmented model fitting. Theory: Analytical expressions for uncertainties of D and f from segmented model fitting were derived as Cramer-Rao lower bounds (CRLBs). Methods: Optimized b-value schemes were obtained for 3 to 12 acquisitions and in the limit of infinitely many acquisitions through constrained minimization of the CRLBs, with b-values constrained to be 0 or 200 to 800 s/mm2. The optimized b-value scheme with eight acquisitions was compared with b-values linearly distributed in the allowed range using simulations and in vivo liver data from seven healthy volunteers. Results: All optimized b-value schemes contained exactly three unique b-values regardless of the total number of acquisitions (0, 200, and 800 s/mm2) with repeated acquisitions distributed approximately as 1:2:2. Compared with linearly distributed b-values, the variability of estimates of D and f was reduced by approximately 30% as seen both in simulations and in repeated in vivo measurements. Conclusion: The uncertainty of IVIM D and f estimates can be reduced by the use of optimized b-value schemes. © 2019 The Authors.
