3 Tesla (3T) MRI is clearly the next generation in imaging, providing a higher level of detail than previously possible, as well as the ability to visualize the flow of water in the brain. This visualization technique is called Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), which holds great promise. DTI is a revolutionary way to visualize the white matter tracts in the brain and is the future of neurological imaging. This technology is more advanced than simply visualizing the T1 and T2 of hydrogen atoms, as occurs with standard MRI. DTI evaluates the complex diffusion (motion) of water molecules in the brain by determining their direction and flow. This allows noninvasive visualization of the white matter tracts’ (axons’) integrity, considered impossible only a few years ago.
