We first mapped neural connections in the brain via diffusion tensor imaging, which uses an MRI scanner to measure the movement of water along neural connections.
To reach their findings, researchers used a magnetic resonance technique called diffusion tensor imaging on 32 amateur football players.
In addition to regular MRI, the subjects' brains were scanned using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), an advanced MRI method that measures water diffusion in many directions.
The auditory area of her brain started taking over the somatosensory area," says Ro, who used diffusion tensor imaging, which focuses on the brain's white matter connections, to spot the change.
This brief review summarizes evidence of regional CNS damage from neuroimaging studies using noninvasive magnetic resonance (MR) technologies for in vivo examination of brain structure (conventional magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]), white matter fiber integrity (MR diffusion tensor imaging [DTI]), and brain chemistry (MR spectroscopy [MRS]) in people comorbid for alcoholism and HIV infection compared with single-diagnosis groups and unaffected control subjects.
Their topics include a comparative analysis of structural brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of AD, diffusion tensor imaging in AD and mild cognitive impairment, changes in para-hippocampal white matter integrity in amnestic mild and cognitive impairment as seen with diffusion tensor imaging, pinpointing synaptic loss caused by AD with functional MRI, amyloid imaging in aging and dementia to test the amyloid hypothesis in vivo, and applications of neuroimaging to disease-modification trials in AD.
Diffusion tensor imaging shows how water tracks along the axons, giving a good view of white matter lesions.
Whereas CT and standard MRI structural images can readily demonstrate large focal contusions or bleeds, diffuse axonal injury may be detected indirectly by brain volume loss (volumetric analysis) or diffusion tensor imaging (DTI).
Methods such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI, which measures the flow of water particles) can investigate the integrity of nerve fiber pathways, and magnetization transfer imaging (MTI, a technique that improves image contrast) may be able to detect myelin repair.
Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is an MRI imaging technique that uses the diffusion principles of water in the cerebral white matter tracts in order to create a 3D representation of fiber tracts.
