The purpose of this study is to determine whether diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) metrics including tensor shape measures such as linear and planar anisotropy coefficients (CL and CP) can help differentiate glioblastomas from solitary brain metastases. Sixty-three patients with histopathologic diagnosis of glioblastomas (22 men, 16 women, mean age 58.4(More)
The purpose of this study was to use high-resolution diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to investigate the association between DTI metrics and sociability in BALB/c inbred mice. The sociability of prepubescent (30-day-old) BALB/cJ mice was operationally defined as the time that the mice spent sniffing a stimulus mouse in a social choice test. High-resolution ex(More)
The time dependence of the apparent diffusion tensor of ex vivo calf heart and tongue was measured for diffusion times (tau(d)) between 32 and 810 ms. The results showed evidence of restricted diffusion in the muscle tissues of both organs. In regions where the myofibers are parallel, the largest eigenvalue (lambda(1)) of the diffusion tensor remained the(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of cardiac pulsation in diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) of the rat brain. DTI data were acquired either with or without different cardiac gating delays. For each case, two sets of identical DTI data were acquired for a bootstrap analysis to measure the uncertainty in estimating mean diffusivity (MD),(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of gadolinium (III) diethyltriaminepenta-acetic acid (Gd-DTPA) mixed with a fixative on the image contrast between the white and gray matter of the perfusion-fixed mouse brain. A series of microscopic MRI (microMRI) studies using different concentrations of Gd-DTPA were performed at multiple time(More)
This study was performed to assess the feasibility of investigating the complex lingual myoarchitecture through segmentation of muscles from diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) data. The primary eigenvectors were found to be adequate for delineating the superior and inferior longitudinalis, genioglossus, and hyoglossus. The tertiary eigenvector orientations(More)
Radial MRI is typically used for scans that are sensitive to unavoidable motion. While the translational motion artifact can be easily removed from the radial trajectory data by phase correction, correction of rotational motion still remains a challenge in radial MRI. We present a novel method to refocus the image corrupted by view-to-view motion in the(More)
