Abstract

Magnetic Resonance Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is a neuroimaging method for detecting and representation of water diffusion properties of nervous tissues. Fiber tracking technique uses DTI data and reconstructs nervous fibers and significantly enhances the knowledge about the in vivo configuration of white matter. Using sophisticated algorithms and specialized software, DTI and fiber tracking detect in patients pathological changes of nervous system. The white matter tracts can be investigated not only by simple observation, but also through analyzing water diffusion coefficients, magnitudes of anisotropy and fibers parameters.
