Abstract：Objective To explore the significance of applying DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) in the
diagnosis of cerebral palsy in infants with developmental delays. Methods Thirty-three cases of cerebral
palsy infants were selected as the cerebral palsy group, while 33 cases of healthy children as the control
group. Then, DTI was performed on both the groups so as to observe the changes of the fiber tracts and
research DTI features and its relevance with cerebral palsy. Additionally, the statistical method was
applied to compare each FA (Fractional Anisotropy) value in the ROIs (Region-of-Interest) between the
cerebral palsy group and the control group. Results Of 33 cerebral palsy infants, sparse and interrupted
fiber tracts with abnormal orientation were revealed in different extent in 23 cases on different regions; no
obvious changes of fiber tracts were revealed in 10 cases. The FA value in the ROIs of the cerebral palsy
group was lower than that of the control group. There were significant differences (P<0.05) between
the two groups.
