Using magnetic resonance-diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), we examined white matter changes within the brains of patients diagnosed with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH). We analyzed data for 24 INPH patients who were presented with typical clinical symptoms (gait disturbance, dementia, and/or urinary incontinence) and Evans index > 0.3, and compared these with the control data from 21 elderly persons (≥ 60 years). DTI brain images were obtained with a 3T scanner. Fractional… CONTINUE READING
