PURPOSE Diffusion tensor imaging can evaluate the cerebral white matter quantitatively using fractional anisotropy (FA) and also can extract a certain tract by tractography, but these two have been used separately and not combined. The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical feasibility of ROI analysis using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen patients with ALS (9 limb-onset type, 7 bulbar-onset type… CONTINUE READING
