The effect of a gadolinium-based contrast agent on diffusion tensor imaging
European Journal of Radiology, 08/10/2012
Zolal A et al. – Diffusion tensor imaging scans performed after gadolinium contrast agent administration may display artificially increased fractional anisotropy (FA) values due to disproportional changes of the measured eigenvalues. The distortion of the diffusion measurement is strongest in, but not limited to the contrasting areas.
