Regional Distribution and Clinical Correlates of White Matter Structural Damage in Huntington Disease: A Tract-Based Spatial Statistics Study
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: HD entails damage of the WM. Our aim was to explore in vivo the regional volume and microstructure of the brain WM in HD and to correlate such findings with clinical status ofExpand

Axial diffusivity is increased in the degenerating superior cerebellar peduncles of Friedreich's ataxia
IntroductionDecreased fractional anisotropy (FA) demonstrated by diffusion tensor MR imaging (DTI) in areas of white matter (WM) damage is generally associated with increase of radial diffusivity,Expand

The Present and the Future of Neuroimaging in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
SUMMARY: In patients with ALS, conventional MR imaging is frequently noninformative, and its use has been restricted to excluding other conditions that can mimic ALS. Conversely, the extensiveExpand
