The brain consist of about 75 percent water. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is an advanced magnetic resonance (MR) technique imaging that has been developed for diagnostic and research in medicine. It can be use DTI tractography to better understand degenerating axons of white matter lesions in some neurological diseases such as MS, AD, trauma, cerebral ischemia, epilepsy, brain tumors and metabolic disorders.
