Abstract

Objective: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a multisystem condition which impairs white matter, corticospinal tract and frontotemporal functions including cognition and behavior. This study aimed to perform diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to detect white matter microstructural abnormalities, and also understanding the pathophysiology in ALS using 3T magnetic resonance imaging.
