Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate whether diffusion tensor imaging DTI parameters and cross-sectional area CSA can differentiate between the sciatic nerve of Charcot-Marie-Tooth CMT disease type I demyelinating form patients and that of controls. Magnetic resonance imaging including DTI and axial T2-weighted Dixon sequence was performed for each subject. Region of interest analysis was independently performed by two radiologists on each side of the sciatic nerve at four levels: hamstring tendon origin level 1 , lesser trochanter of the femur level 2 , gluteus maximus tendon insertion level 3 , and mid-femur level 4. The CSA of the sciatic nerve bundle was measured using axial water-only image at each level. Comparisons of DTI parameters between the two groups were performed using the two-sample t test and Mann-Whitney U test.

Metrics details. Traumatic brain injury is a form of acquired brain injury that results from sudden trauma to the head. Specifically, mild traumatic brain injury is a clinical diagnosis that can have significant effects on an individual's life, yet is difficult to identify through traditional imaging techniques. This is the case of a year-old previously healthy African American woman who was involved in a motor vehicle accident that resulted in significant head trauma. After the accident, she experienced symptoms indicative of mild traumatic brain injury and sought a neurological consultation when her symptoms did not subside. She was initially evaluated with a neurological examination, psychological evaluation, acute concussion evaluation and a third-party memory test using software from CNS Vital Signs for neurocognitive function.
Role of Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Parkinson's Disease Diagnosis
Background: Magnetic resonance diffusion-tensor imaging DTI is a tool for the assessment of neural fiber integrity. We applied DTI in a patient with hearing loss that developed after bilateral putaminal hemorrhage. Case: A year-old woman was referred to our outpatient clinic for sequelae diagnosis. Six years earlier, she had suffered a left putaminal hemorrhage, but almost fully recovered.
