Diffusion Tensor Imaging

Directional Analysis of Water Molecules

Building upon Hitachi’s DWI capability, Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) provides multi-directional analysis of white matter fiber tracts to assess the amount of diffusivity and degree of anisotropy using Fractional Anisotropy (FA) and Mean Diffusivity (MD) maps. DTI provides physiological and quantitative analysis for early stage disease including tumor detection & treatment, acute ischemia, dfferentiating abscess vs. necrotic acute ischemia, and white matter connectivity (tissue damage).
