Quantifying the functional parameters of brachial plexus injury can provide more valuable information for clinic. This article aims to apply diffusion tensor imaging (DTI)to brachial plexus injury and reveal the pathological causes of the disease from Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Our study revealed that patients with brachial plexus injury had higher FA and lower ADC values when compared with the healthy control, and FA showed the better diagnostic efficiency (AUC:0.763; sensitivity: 94.1%; specificity: 44.1%).
