We investigated the clinical feasibility of characterizing brain tissue microstructure in epilepsy with mean apparent propagator (MAP)-MRI, and compared with diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) using whole-brain voxel-based analyses. Results demonstrated that the MAP-MRI microstructural parameters could potentially provide more sensitive clinical biomarkers than conventional DTI techniques due to increased pathophysiological specificity in microstructural changes detection.
