Wei Wang, Wen Qin, Nanxin Hao, Yibin Wang, Genlin Zong
BACKGROUND: Although diffusion tensor imaging has been successfully applied in brain research for decades, several main difficulties have hindered its extended utilization in spinal cord imaging. PURPOSE: To assess the feasibility and clinical value of diffusion tensor imaging and tractography for evaluating chronic spinal cord compression. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Single-shot spin-echo echo-planar DT sequences were scanned in 42 spinal cord compression patients and 49 healthy volunteers...

INTRODUCTION: Schwannomas are tumors charasteristically originated from the nerve sheath. They expande eccentrically from the nerve promoting a disturbance in the neural function either due to vascular compresion or to the effect of the tumor itself on the nerve, disturbance that can be evidenced with the Auditory-evoked Brainstem Response (ABR), fact that constituted the base for their diagnosis in the past. The new radiological techniques developed over the last decades have made possible an earlier diagnosis, and therefore changed their prognosis in terms of nerve function...
