This article is an open access publication Abstract the L5 nerve correlated with neurophysiological measures Purpose Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has shown promise from the muscle innervated by it. in the measurement of peripheral nerve integrity, although the Conclusion The current findings suggest that DTI has the optimal way to apply the technique for the study of lumbar potential to be used for assessing lumbar spinal nerve integrity spinal nerves is unclear. The aims of this study are to use an and that parameters derived from DTI provide quantitative improved DTI acquisition to investigate lumbar nerve root information which reflects their function. integrity and correlate this with functional measures using . . neurophysiology.
