Table 2 Equally distanced b value acquisition strategy for N (3–5) b value acquisitions, where \((bD)_{\hbox{max} } = 3/K\) is the maximum allowable acquisition point, \({\text{CoV}}_{K}\), \({\text{CoV}}_{D}\) and \({\text{CoV}}_{S}\) are the coefficients of variation, respectively, for K, D and S 0
