In the studies concerning the pathology of the auditory pathway in the vestibulocochlear system, few use advanced neuroimaging applications of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). Those who did use reported DTI changes only at the lateral lemniscus and inferior colliculus level. The aim of our study was to determine diffusion changes in the bilateral auditory pathways of subjects with unilateral acoustic neuroma (AN) and compare them with healthy controls.
