Diffuse Tensor Imaging - PowerPoint Presentation

  1. 1. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) Kevin Li Paul Mozo Cesar Quintana Andrea Rolong
  2. 2. Introduction To DTI  Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)  MR Imaging Modality  Utilizes Diffusion Rate and Direction of Diffusion Measurements  Evaluate Various Conditions  Mainly Involving the Brain Mori, Susumu, and Jiangyang Zhang. "Principles of Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Its Applications to Basic Neuroscience Research." Neuron. (527-539): 2006. Print. Presentation by Jay A. Van Gerpen, M.D., Neurologist Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, FL
  3. 3. Comparison to MRI  Main difference lies in the process of data acquisition  Visualization techniques for diffusion tensor data. Two groups:  Image-based methods and the 3D rendering of those images  Symbolic (or geometric) display methods by using various types of glyph such as ellipsoid  Tractography based on diffusion tensor tracking is the most attracting tools for visualizing and analyzing white matter fiber tracts ance%20and%20new%20techniques%20for%20diffusion%20tensor%20visualization%20science.pdf Image-based display of diffusion tensor data
  4. 4.  Ellipsoidal visualization of diffusion tensor data vance%20and%20new%20techniques%20for%20diffusion%20tensor%20visualization%20science.pdf
  5. 5.  Fiber tractography by tracking diffusion tensor nce%20and%20new%20techniques%20for%20diffusion%20tensor%20visualization%20science.pdf
  6. 6. Physics • Tensor diffusion imaging uses the diffusion of water to measure the intensity of signal. • The physics of weighted imaging f(x,y)=M0(1-e-TR/T1)e-TE/T2e-bD where b=(G∆)2(∆-/3) . • Tensors are used to limited number of measurements. • Diffusion tensor can be determined by using vector multiplications B= X=BD =true
