Brain diffusion tensor MRI of 11 boys with X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy was performed. The authors determined quantitative isotropic apparent diffusion coefficient (ADCi) and fractional anisotropy (FA) values in the white matter. ADCi and FA values in the affected white matter were significantly different from those in normal-appearing white matter. Zonal ADCi and FA gradations, which might originate from well-established histopathologic zonal changes, existed within affected white matter.
