Demonstration of interstitial cerebral edema with diffusion tensor MR imaging in type C hepatic encephalopathy
The increase in MD with no concomitant changes in FA in cirrhosis with minimal or early HE indicates the presence of reversible interstitial brain edema.
Diffusion tensor imaging of the developing human cerebrum
The studies suggest that the DTI‐estimated anisotropy could be useful in following neuronal migration, cortical maturation, and associated changes in the germinal matrix during early brain development.
Magnetic resonance imaging in central nervous system tuberculosis
Noninvasive imaging modalities such as computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are routinely used in the diagnosis of neurotuberculosis, with MRI offering greater inherent sensitivity and specificity than CT scan.
Correlation of quantitative sensorimotor tractography with clinical grade of cerebral palsy
White matter tracts from both the somatosensory and the motor cortex play an important role in the pathophysiology of motor disability in patients with CP, and significant inverse correlation between clinical grade and fractional anisotropy was observed.
Serial quantitative diffusion tensor MRI of the term neonates with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE).
The results suggest that abnormal FA and MD values help in early and more accurate assessment of microstructural damage in HIE that may have predictive value for long-term neurofunctional outcome in these neonates.
Can we differentiate true white matter fibers from pseudofibers inside a brain abscess cavity using geometrical diffusion tensor imaging metrics?
High CP with low CL inside the abscess cavity suggests that the shape of the diffusion tensor is predominantly planar, whereas it is linear in WM tracts, and these geometrical indices may have advantages over FA for differentiating true from pseudo WM tracts inside theAbscess cavity.
