Table 1 Measurements from Mn-labeled regions, above and below the lesion, and at the epicenter of the injury.

From: Imaging corticospinal tract connectivity in injured rat spinal cord using manganese-enhanced MRI

  Above the lesion Epicenter Below the lesion
Trace/3 (× 10-3 mm2/s) 0.69 ± 0.05 0.59 ± 0.07 0.64 ± 0.06
FA 0.88 ± 0.08 0.79 ± 0.13 0.85 ± 0.10
  1. Trace/3: average of the three principal eigenvalues of the diffusion tensor. FA: fractional anisotropy index. The statistics are given as mean ± standard deviation.
