Diffusion Tensor Imaging of the Brain


MSc of Medical Physics Iran University of Medical Sciences



Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) as a new imaging technique has been highly welcomed in clinical and research environments. A technique whose main purpose is imaging based on the Brownian motion of water. The two main advantages of this imaging method are examination in two scales, microscopic and macroscopic. Both the information is measured in the microscopic dimension and the information is examined in the macroscopic way such as rotation of white matter fibers. The help of this lecture is to introduce the basis of fiber routing and various methods of reconstruction and analysis of DTI images.
