Ji Hyun Yeo, Su Min Son, Eun Sil Lee, Han Ku Moon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(1):99-104.   Published online January 15, 2009
Purpose : Magnetic resonance diffusion tensor imaging-based three-dimensional fiber tractography (DTI-FT) is a new method which demonstrates the orientation and integrity of white matter fibers in vivo. However, clinical application on children with cerebral palsy is still under investigation. We present various abnormal patterns of DTI-FT findings and accordance rate with clinical findings in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy, to...
