Project Details

Description

Motor deficits are the principal cause of disability after stroke. Establishing validated stroke recovery predictive models that can identify patients earlier for targeted rehabilitation is critical. We are proposing a pilot study to evaluate the reliability of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), a validated technique to measure nerve fiber integrity, as a biomarker of long-term motor recovery and to evaluate change of corticospinal tract (CST) structure over 3 months.
