Motor outcome prediction using diffusion tensor tractography in pontine infarct
DTT obtained at the early stage of pontine infarct appears to have predictive value for motor outcome in patients with pontine Infarct. Expand
A comparison of microstructural maturational changes of the corpus callosum in preterm and full-term children: a diffusion tensor imaging study
The present study shows that thinning of the CC is correlated with lower FA value and that it is more pronounced in preterm children, and the isthmus was found to be the most vulnerable subdivision in pre term children. Expand

Patients with the presence of a motor evoked potential in TMS or a preserved corticospinal tract in DTT showed better motor outcomes than those without, which could be a reference to predict final neurological deficit at the early stage of ICH. Expand
Safety and feasibility of countering neurological impairment by intravenous administration of autologous cord blood in cerebral palsy
Autologous CB infusion is safe and feasible, and has yielded potential benefits in children with CP, and neurologic improvement occurred significantly in patients with diplegia or hemiplegia rather than quadriplegia. Expand
Radiologic differences in white matter maturation between preterm and full-term infants: TBSS study
Investigation of maturational differences of WM between preterm infants with thinning of the corpus callosum and full-term infants provides evidence of the need for therapeutic intervention within 2 years of birth to prevent specific functional impairment and to improve clinical outcome in preterm children. Expand
Diffusion tensor imaging demonstrated radiologic differences between diplegic and quadriplegic cerebral palsy
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) of the corticospinal tract (CST) of upper and lower extremities in quadriplegic cerebral palsy patients significantly corresponded with their typical clinical manifestation and may be a very powerful modality to assess the state of CST in cerebral palsY patients. Expand
Developmental process of the arcuate fasciculus from infancy to adolescence: a diffusion tensor imaging study
The radiologic developmental patterns of the AF from infancy to adolescence are demonstrated using subcomponent DTI analysis, showing a specific developmental sequence, sex difference in younger age, and hemispheric asymmetry in older age. Expand
Diffusion tensor imaging demonstrates focal lesions of the corticospinal tract in hemiparetic patients with cerebral palsy
It is concluded that DTI with FT may be a useful modality for investigating focal lesions in hemiparetic patients with cerebral palsy and demonstrated focal lesions at the PVWM level. Expand
Diffusion tensor imaging findings in neurologically asymptomatic patients with end stage renal disease.
Using DTI, this study attempted to investigate DTI findings in patients with ESRD who showed no specific lesions on conventional brain MRI and found abnormalities on DTTs that were associated with cognition; however, they did not show significant cognitive abnormalities. Expand
Diffusion tensor tractography can predict hemiparesis in infants with high risk factors
In these two patients, DTT revealed abnormalities of the CST prior to the manifestation of hemiparesis, suggesting DTT would be a useful modality in detecting CST abnormalities in advance of clinical manifestation in infants with high risk factors. Expand
