2006a). Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) provides a measure of both the magnitude and direction of water diffusibility where this information is represented in a 3 × 3 matrix or tensor form for each voxel (Bammer et al. 2005; Mori and Zhang 2006; Nucifora et al. 2007; Talos et al. 2006). Such information is important in that water diffusion within tissues is generally unequal directionally. I.

2008). Magnetization Transfer Ratio (MTR) Imaging Another less conventional MRI sequence is MT imaging that relies on tissue contrast from the interactions that occur between the protons in free fluid and those bound to macromolecular structures (Tofts et al. 2003). MT imaging probes the properties of the bound water by applying a radiofrequency pulse that is off-resonance from the free water protons yet still able to saturate the broader macromolecular proton pool. The constant exchange of magnetization between the free and bound water results in a decrease in signal intensity of off-resonance saturation images, and the ratio in intensity in MT images collected with and without the off-resonance saturation pulse provides an indication of the bound protons.
