DTI has shown evidence of alterations to the micro-structural integrity of the brain due to infection from HIV. However this finding is not consistent across all studies. In this work, we compare metrics obtained from DTI and diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) to determine if DKI can provide a more reliable and sensitive measurement of structural integrity.
