Several studies have focused on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) as marker for structural damage in the brain due to infection from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). However, few have associated the findings from diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) measures. In this work, we correlate measures of DTI and DKI with MRSI in order to evaluate associations between structural alterations and changes in metabolite concentrations within the brain of HIV individuals.
