Serial evaluation of diffusion tensor brain fiber tracking was performed in a 27-year-old female patient with diffuse axonal injury after a traffic accident. Although the result of brain fiber tracking was not necessarily parallel to her clinical symptoms, it may have predicted the neurologic prognosis.
Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) has recently been attempted in the abdominal region. We review diffusion-weighted images of the liver, especially from the technical point of view. We discuss selection of pulse sequence parameters, effects of anti-breathing motion technique, tips for measuring apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), and utility of… (More)
