Objective: The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the predictive value of DTI with respect to resectability of intramedullary spinal cord tumors and to determine the concordance of this method with intraoperative surgical findings. Methods: Study design was retrospective. 13 patients[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
