BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine changes in normal-appearing deep gray and white matter regions of the brain in patients with Chiari I malformation compared with controls using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and to correlate these changes with neuropsychological (NP) test scores. METHODS Conventional magnetic resonance imaging, DTI, and neuropsychological tests were performed on 10 patients (median age 27 years, range 18 to 36 years) with Chiari I malformation and 10 age/sex… CONTINUE READING
