AbstractINTRODUCTION: Wallerian degeneration, the anterograde degeneration of axons and myelin sheaths after proximal axonal or cell body injury, is known to occur after cerebral infarction. In this pilot study, we aim to evaluate if diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), using the indices of fractional anisotropy (FA) and mean diffusivity (MD), can detect and quantify Wallerian degeneration in paediatric middle cerebral artery (MCA) strokes and to compare the findings with conventional MR imaging. METHODS: Nine children with unilateral MCA infarctions were studied. Axial T1-weighted, proton density and T2-weighted images, as well as DTI were performed using a Signa 1.5 Tesla imager. Quantitative values of FA …
