Recent progress in diffusion MRI data acquisition and analysis method opens a new avenue to measure white matter tracts connecting distant brain areas in the living human brains.

In this research article, CiNet Researcher Hiromasa Takemura and collaborators in Jikei University School of Medicine, Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Tamagawa University investigated how retinal ganglion cell damage affects tissue properties of visual white matter tracts by combining two different types of MRI measurements (diffusion MRI and quantitative T1 mapping).

“Diffusivity and quantitative T1 profile of human visual white matter tracts after retinal ganglion cell damage.”
