Specific neurological impairments in multiple sclerosis (MS) are dependent on the pathology in clinically eloquent areas of the central nervous system. We aimed to use diffusion tensor fiber tracking to identify the pyramidal tracts and corpus callosum in MS patients, measure the apparent diffusivity within the tracts, and evaluate whether this would correlate with relevant disability scores. Dual-echo and diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) brain scans were obtained from 29… CONTINUE READING
