BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The inherent low anisotropy of gray matter and the lack of adequate imaging sensitivity and resolution has, so far, impeded depiction of axonal fibers to their intracortical origin or termination. We tested the hypothesis that an experimental approach with high-resolution diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) provides anisotropic data for fiber tractography with sufficient sensitivity to visualize in vivo the fine distribution of white matter bundles at the intracortical level… CONTINUE READING
