Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)

Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is an advanced MRI technique used to visualize the microstructure of white matter in the brain. It measures the diffusion of water molecules within neural tissues, providing information about the organization and integrity of white matter tracts, which are bundles of nerve fibers that transmit signals throughout the brain. DTI is particularly useful for studying conditions that affect white matter integrity, such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and neurodegenerative diseases. It can help researchers and clinicians understand how these conditions affect the connectivity and communication between different brain regions.
