CHIARI STUDY (In Progress): Diffusion Tensor Imaging Changes with Decompression of Chiari I

Fri, 07/20/2012

This study, which is scheduled to be published in August, evaluated MRIs of 10 patients before and after posterior fossa decompression of Chiari I malformations. Researchers studied the diffusion tensor imaging changes (Fractional Anisotropy - FA and Apparent Diffusion Coefficient - ADC) before and after Chiari surgery and correlated findings with clinical and radiological presentation.
