We use diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the effects on fractional anisotropy of diffusion tensor interpolation methods in the presence of myocardial infarction. Our results suggest that precaution should be taken with diffusion tensor interpolation when using absolute indexes (as the FA value) to distinguish infarction and remote regions, since interpolation methods may affect FA values in a non-negligible manner.
