原始语种摘要: Background: The aim of this prospective observational comparative study is to evaluate the role of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) in management of intramedullary spinal cord tumours (IMSCT) for predicting ’safe resectability’ to assess subsequent neurological outcomes. Methods: DTI was performed in 65 patients (38 male and 27 females with a mean age of 37.5 years) with IMSCT (intramedullary spinal cord tumours) and conventional contrast enhanced MRI. DTI parameters to predict the margin for tumour resectabiity included ‒ Medium resolution DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) on a 3T MRI (Philips Ingenia scanner) with following parameters: Axial Plane B values: 0,1000; Number of directions, 15; TR 6248 TE 60; Slice thickness, 2 mm; inter slice gap, 0.5 mm; NSA, 2 and bandwidth 29.8.
