We sought to use diffusion-tensor imaging-based tractography to assess the relationship between the arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and the sensorimotor cortices/tracts. Three patients who had an AVM closely situated to the sensorimotor tracts were studied. The relationship between the sensorimotor tracts and the AVM was well demonstrated in all patients. Tractography was also helpful in identifying the location of the motor cortex in some of the cases.
