BACKGROUND HIV is a neurotropic virus which can cause brain white matter demyelination, gliosis, and other pathological changes that appear as HIV encephalitis or AIDS dementia. The purpose of this study was to investigate the change of the diffused condition of water molecules in brain white matter in early acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients using MR diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). METHODS DTI examinations were performed on a Siemens 3.0T MR scanner in 23 AIDS patients with… CONTINUE READING
