Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) of Brachial Plexus

Diffusion is the random, thermally-induced, microscopic water motion within a tissue, well known as Brownian motion. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is an extension of Diffusion-Weighted Imaging (DWI) that takes into account and measures the anisotropic diffusion (nerves are highly anisotropic). DTI can be useful in MR Neurography of the brachial plexus, offering functional information (can show if a tumour deviates, infiltrates or distructs the fiber bundles).
