DWI

A crime defined as the operation of a motor vehicle after the use of any substance, including alcohol or illicit drugs, that may impair one's judgment, cognition, coordination, reflexes, or ability to react appropriately in traffic. Most states rely on a standard test that includes both observable impairment in motor function, speech, and balance and an elevated blood alcohol level or a positive screening test for other intoxicants. Also called driving under the influence.

Diffusion Weighted images (DWI) were obtained using a single-shot echo planar spin echo technique (TR/TE/NEX: 4200/140 ms/I) with diffusion sensitivities of b values = 0, 500 and 1000 s/mm2 on a 1.5-Tesla MR scanner (GE Health Care Signa H D).
