Abstract

Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is a neuroimaging technique with a potential to elucidate white matter integrity. Recently, it has been used in the field of psychiatry to further understand the pathophysiology of major diseases, including bipolar disorder (BD). This review sought to focus on existing DTI findings on white matter organization in BD.
