Abstract

Computed DWI (cDWI) is a mathematical technique that calculates arbitrary higher b value images from at least two different lower b values. In addition, the removal of high intensity noise with image processing on cDWI could improve cholesteatoma-background contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR). In the present study, noise reduction was performed by the cut-off values of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) less than 0 and 0.4 × 10−3 s/mm2. The cholesteatoma to non-cholesteatoma CNR was increased using a noise reduction algorithm for clinical setting.
