Diffusion tensor imaging has been increasingly used for studying white matter pathology in rodent models of neurological diseases. Here, applications of diffusion tensor imaging in detecting major and subtle white matter pathology in the mouse CNS are reviewed, followed by several technical details that may be helpful in designing studies that involve diffusion tensor imaging of rodent brain and spinal cord.
