Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Its Application to Traumatic Brain Injury: Basic Principles and Recent Advances

Ping-Hong Yeh, Terrence R. Oakes, Gerard Riedy
2012 Open Journal of Medical Imaging  
Diffusion MRI tractography is an extension of diffusion weighted imaging, and can provide additional information about white matter pathways and the integrity of brain neural networks.  ...  Traumatic axonal injury is a progressive process evoked by shear forces on the brain, gradually evolving from focal axonal alteration and cumulating in neural disconnection.  ...  All of these unsupervised clustering techniques must integrate anatomic knowledge and atlas information in order to parcellate the known meaningful fiber tracts.  ...
