In this study, a simplified approach to obtain perfusion influence from diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) measurements for breast cancer assessment is proposed. Our results present how the relative perfusion effect derived from different monoexponential fitting schemes of DWI measurements can be obtained. Furthermore, this simplified approach offers a potential for breast cancer differentiation by means of the derived biomarker.
