Mean apparent propagator (MAP)-MRI, which builds a powerful analytical framework based on the random motion distribution of real water molecules, can more accurately and comprehensively characterize microstructure features of brain tissues than conventional diffusion imaging. This study investigated the application of MAP-MRI in the early diagnosis of radiation-induced brain injury in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma, compared with diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI).
