Example text

Water diffusion in brain is altered by various processes, including development and aging or injury (Huppi and Dubois 2006; Wozniak and Lim 2006; Nucifora et al. 2007). For example, following acute stroke or cerebral ischemia, increases in DWI and decreases in ADC are observed (Fig. 2a, b). These are considered to reflect cell swelling and a reduction in extracellular space associated with ischemic reductions in ATP and ion pump failure (Sotak 2004; Talos et al. 2006; Weber et al. 2006a). Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) provides a measure of both the magnitude and direction of water diffusibility where this information is represented in a 3 × 3 matrix or tensor form for each voxel (Bammer et al.

3a, d). Reductions in MTR in white matter occur in patients with multiple sclerosis within white matter lesions and regions of demyelination (Bagnato et al. 2006; Filippi and Agosta 2007; Horsfield 2005). Reductions in MTR also occur in animal models of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis and have been correlated with the inflammatory response and the appearance of specific macrophages (Blezer et al. 2007; Dijkhuizen 2006). MT imaging also detects tissue changes associated with stroke and reductions in MTR have been reported to occur following cerebral ischemia (Dijkhuizen 2006).

Although these morphological parameters introduced for SR micro-CT are new, they are based on the same analysis procedures described earlier for direct measurements of trabecular architecture. Th* method). Image Registration An important development for in vivo analysis has been the application of 3D image registration for image alignment (Boyd et al. 2006b). Because repeated scans of the same animal or person can now be performed, the identification of a common region of interest between follow-up scans is important for two reasons.
