BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The age effect on the diffusion pattern in the basal ganglia differs from that in the white matter. The main purpose of our study was to provide further insight into the change of water diffusion in the basal ganglia during human brain aging by using the eigenvalues of DTI. MATERIALS AND METHODS We examined 71 healthy subjects (mean age, 41.8 +/- 14.5 years; age range, 20-79 years). The values of MD, FA, and the eigenvalues lambda(1) and lambda(23) (lambda(23) = [lambda… CONTINUE READING
