In vivo imaging-based biomarkers that can accurately detect the brain structural and functional changes due to chronic drug abuse play a significant role to understand and assess brain damage due to cocaine abuse and to determine the efficacy of the treatment. To this end, we have demonstrated that diffusion tensor MRI could detect brain structural changes, particularly demyelination in white matter structures, in chronic cocaine administered mice.
