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.
