Diffusion tensor imaging reveals regional differences in the cervical spinal cord in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Abstract

Therapeutic development in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is hampered by the lack of suitable biomarkers that might be sensitive to spatial and temporal patterns of neurodegeneration. Diffusion tensor imaging is a useful non-invasive tool that permits detection of microstructural tissue changes due, for example, to neurodegeneration. Even though the… (More)
