Summary of "Diffusion tensor imaging and fiber tractography reveal significant micro-structural changes of cervical nerve roots in cervical spondylotic radiculopathy patients."

We sought to delineate the fractional anisotropy (FA) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of cervical spondylotic radiculopathy patients by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and fiber bundle tracing.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of diffusion ANISOTROPY data from diffusion magnetic resonance imaging results to construct images based on the direction of the faster diffusing molecules.

A diagnostic technique that incorporates the measurement of molecular diffusion (such as water or metabolites) for tissue assessment by MRI. The degree of molecular movement can be measured by changes of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) with time, as reflected by tissue microstructure. Diffusion MRI has been used to study BRAIN ISCHEMIA and tumor response to treatment.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technetium imaging agent used to reveal blood-starved cardiac tissue during a heart attack.

A TEXTILE fiber obtained from the pappus (outside the SEEDS) of cotton plant (GOSSYPIUM). Inhalation of cotton fiber dust over a prolonged period can result in BYSSINOSIS.
