Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)

Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is an MRI technique that can produce a “wiring diagram” of the brain, examining at the integrity of the brain’s neural pathways (white matter fibers) in order to detect various brain pathologies. Although DTI is relatively new it has proven to be an invaluable research tool paving the way for major advancements in neuroscience. Clinical usefulness for DTI remains to be established.
