Diffusion tensor MRI of human ischaemic stroke: quantitative measurements, acquisition and registration issues
Munoz Maniega, Susana
The value of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) for early diagnosis of human ischaemic stroke has triggered the rapid development of this imaging technique. The introduction of the diffusion tensor (DT) model provides a range of tools that permit the quantitative assessment of this and many other neurological disorders. This thesis addresses some of the methodological issues encountered when using DT-MRI to image acute stroke patients.
