Background and Purpose—The increase in fractional anisotropy (FA) in acute stroke has yet to be explained. Using an engineering methodology known as pq diagrams, we sought to explain the increase in FA by describing changes in the total magnitude of the diffusion tensor (L) as well as the isotropic (p) and anisotropic (q) components. Methods—Diffusion… (More)
