Dr. Denis Le Bihan is a pioneer of the Diffusion MRI concept from theorization of water diffusion measurement by MRI to its application in clinical practice, and his innovative imaging techniques have rapidly spread throughout the world. Combined with the advance of intravenous thrombolytic therapy, Diffusion MRI has spared many patients suffering acute stroke by drastically shortening the time required for diagnosis within just minutes to a few hours after the stroke onset, when brain tissue is still salvageable. Crisp Diffusion MRI images also facilitate the diagnosis of other neurological diseases and the determination of the extent of tumor dissection before performing surgery, leading to a drastic decline in the risk of damaging white matter fibers associated with bodily function during surgical procedures.
