This study aimed to measure the FA and ADC values by quantitative DTI at the tibial nerve and common peroneal nerve and determine whether DTI can be used in the DPN. 25 healthy volunteers and 13 patients with DPN were underwent MR examinations at 3T including DTI of knee. The FA values of both tibial nerve and common peroneal nerve in DPN patients were significantly lower than those in healthy volunteers. The ADC values in DPN patients were higher than those in healthy groups. DTI may thus be a reliable method to added diagnostic value in patients with DPN.
