Diffusion anisotropy index, diffusion trace and eigenvalues of the pyramidal tracts were measured in 19 patients with supratentorial brain tumor using diffusion tensor MR imaging. These indices reflected condition of pyramidal tract, being compressed and/or being T2-high. Estimation of eigenvalues, in addition to diffusion anisotropy and the trace, should provide more detailed information about the pyramidal tract in brain tumor cases.
