RESOLVE-DTI can help to assess the severity of cervical spinal cord injuries and provide reproducible quantitative measurements with limited distortion in a clinically acceptable scan time. With RESOLVE-DTI, severe and mild grades of cervical spinal cord injuries can be discriminated against the imaging bias of spinal stenosis and spinal cord edema.
