Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) visualizes white matter microanatomy and integrity in vivo. Recent advances of high-end MR technology and more robust algorithms provide higher quality DTI and more reliable tractography results. Commonly applied clinical field is preoperative evaluation of brain tumors and other space occupying lesions, various white matter and neurodegenerative diseases. DTI can be also used in epilepsy surgery with the same way as used in neuro-oncology. The purpose of this educational poster is to review the current status of DTI in epilepsy surgery and future directions.
