Figure 1: Line diagram demonstrating the concept of isotropic diffusion, which results from the free random movement of protons (arrow) producing a circle (bold arrow). However, in the brain, due to the presence of various fi ber tracts, the movement of protons is restricted, resulting in anisotropic diffusion (ellipsoid) (shown in the lower half of the figure)
