The purpose of this study is to characterize the cortical connectivity changes in the brain of spastic diplegic children after Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy.


To establish the structural changes in the corticopyramidal tract using diffusion tractography imaging (DTI) due to selective dorsal rhizotomy and compare the resting state functional connectivity(rsfcMRI) temporal latency differences of spastic diplegics for Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy.

Condition Spastic Diplegia
Treatment 3Tesla MRI with DTI-MRI and rsfcMRI under general anesthesia
