Legal wrangling puts rights to diffusion tensor imaging in spotlight | November 5 – A California neurosurgeon has launched what could turn into an epic legal battle over the rights to use diffusion tensor imaging, an MR technology that lately has begun to catch on as a diagnostic and neurosurgical planning tool.

Claiming that he holds the exclusive license to this technology, and that all users are violating that license, Dr. Aaron Filler has filed suit against the Regents of the University of California and Siemens Healthcare.

If successful, the two suits could set precedents, allowing Filler and his company, NeuroGrafix, to sue any university in any state in the union and any vendor whose products involve diffusion tensor imaging (DTI).
