Repeatability and variation of region-of-interest methods using quantitative diffusion tensor MR imaging of the brain

Abstract

BACKGROUND Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is increasingly used in various diseases as a clinical tool for assessing the integrity of the brain's white matter. Reduced fractional anisotropy (FA) and an increased apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) are nonspecific findings in most pathological processes affecting the brain's parenchyma. At present, there is… (More)
